Cucumbers with himalayan sea salt

Cucumbers are in season and with a couple cucumber plants producing wildly, I've got a lot on my hands!

My new favorite way to present and enjoy cucumbers is to mandolin slice them paper thin, spread on a plate and sprinkle himalayan sea salt over the top. Let it sit for 2 -3 minutes to get juicy and then enjoy.

If the skin is tough, first peel off shreds of peel with a potato peeler. Then slice. The result looks like poker chips.

Good quality salt is a perfect partner for cucumbers- you can taste the salt and the cucumber better by eating them together. This is a great snack with good mouthfeel but low calories.

Another way I'm enjoying cucumbers is to juice them with green apples. Yum!
