Cucumbers coming out of your ears, too? Apparently the drought hasn’t affected them one bit!

With cucumbers coming at me from neighbors and friends in all directions (how cool is that?), I’ve had to dig up cucumber recipes to use them up. Cucumber Salad, or as they call it in the old 1964 Home Economics Cookbook, Cucumber Cooler, it is one of those that I always forget about–but love just the same.

This one tastes best if you let it chill for a couple of hours before digging in. Just remember to give it a good stir every now and again. Very refreshing on a hot day!
