How do you feel about cucumbers? I’m always kind of shocked when someone tells me they don’t like them, but then I realize maybe those cucumber-adverse people have only had grocery store cucumbers. Those overly large waxy creatures are a poor substitute for fresh garden cucumbers, which are loaded with a delicate flavor that I just love. And as soon the weather gets hot I start craving cucumber salads.

And cucumbers are especially great when the weather gets hot. And it’s HOT right now all across the U.S., so I’m updating this collection of Low-Carb Cucumbers Salads to Keep You Cool. Hope you enjoy my favorite cucumber salads all summer long!

  6. Having healthy snacks and grab ‘n go lunches like this would be a big help to me.

  7. It's great to taste cucumber salads in this hot summer. All of your recipes are amazing!

  8. Zerrin, I did know that cucumbers are a staple in all the countries in that part of the world, but I had no idea they were eaten for breakfast. And I have not heard about cacik either, thanks for sharing that! Sounds like something I'd love.

  9. A wonderful round up here! Cucumber is one of my favorite summer foods and we have in various ways. Did you know sliced cucumber and tomatoes are staple for a typical Turkish breakfast? Among all, I think my all time favorite cucumber recipe is cacik, which is a combination of strained yogurt, thinly chopped cucumber, mashed garlic and a little dried mint. A perfect refreshing appetizer or side dish or even a snack in summer!

  10. Kate, so glad you enjoyed it. I love that combination.

  11. My little basil plant needed pinching back so I made the Garden Cucumber Salad with Tuna and Fresh Basil today and loved it. So easy to throw together and very refreshing. I can see this becoming a staple in my brown bag rotation.

  12. Thanks Mimi, glad you like it!
