    Having just eaten nearly a whole cucumber (I needed something crunchy and syn-free and I have run out of lettuce!) I suddenly remembered that there was a quotation about cucumbers, so I looked it up:

    "Cucumber should be well sliced, and dressed with pepper and vinegar, and
    then thrown out, as good for nothing"
    -- Samuel Johnson

    Now I am a great admirer of Dr Johnson, but he was definitely wrong there!

    Totally agree. One of the best places to find cucumber is in a G&T.

    Oh you cannot beat half a cucumber, thinly sliced, well salted, and put between two slices of bread!

    Mine hates it as well.........but loves marmite:D
    I enjoy cucumber and tomato with salt and black pepper on ryvita as a snack and gazpacho without diced cucumber is like fish without chips.
