Looking for a cucumber salad recipe? When cucumbers and herbs are plentiful in the victory garden, it’s time to make this refreshing cucumber salad. Tossed in a light and creamy herbed yogurt dressing, it will leave everyone wanting more!
VICTORY GARDEN-GROWN IS BEST!
I’ll be honest.
I make this cucumber salad year-round, but only when cucumbers are less than $1 apiece.
I wish I was joking about this, but I’ve seen cucumbers selling for $3 each on more than one occasion.
By the way, there are many reasons why I call gardens victory gardens, which you can read about in my victory garden post.
Whichever way you cut it, victory garden-grown herbs and cucumbers are best.
Let me tell you why.
Did you know that most produce loses 30% of their nutrients within three days of being harvested?
Unless you’re buying the herbs and cucumbers from a farmer’s market, it’s pretty hard to pinpoint when they were picked and how long they’ve been sitting on the shelf for.
Fortunately, cucumbers aren’t on the EWG’s Dirty Dozen list for 2021, but they have been on that list in the past.
Unless you’re buying organic produce, it’s more than likely that storebought cucumbers have been treated with something.
Therefore, not only are garden-grown cucumbers fresher and more vibrant, but they’re safer and more nutrient-dense, too!…
