Slice cucumbers and put on top of bagels with cream cheese (or tofu version thereof). Yum!

Cucumber-tomato-red onion salad, with a little Italian dressing or vinaigrette.

Cucumbers are also very tasty stuffed in a pita with hummus, tomato, sprouts, baby spinach, feta cheese, black olives, etc.

Do you eat fish? One thing I loooove to do for special occasions is smoked salmon on cucumber rounds. Slice the cukes relatively thickly (say, half-inch), then cut out the middle with a small shaped cookie cutter (you want bite-sized pieces). Spread each with a dilled cream cheese, then top with a piece of smoked salmon and a sprig of fresh dill. I made these once for a brunch I catered and they were a HUGE hit. The other way you can do it is to cut the cuke into two-inch pieces, and hollow out the middle with an apple corer for the cheese/fish stuffing.

HTH! Enjoy!

Note to self: buy cucumbers today!
