We harvested some cucumbers from our vegetable garden and made a salad with avocado and herbs also from the garden.
In this recipe, I beat the cucumbers with a rolling pin. It’s because beating them makes the cross-sectional area of the cucumber larger than cutting with a knife and the seasoning is more easily absorbed.
