Dice cucumber, red onion and tomatoes. Toss with oil and vinegar, salt and pepper. Good as a salad or on a pita sandwhich. Make some fresh pickles.

Peel cucumbers and chop into bite size chunks and mix with a can of good mandarin oranges including juice from can. Chiffonade some fresh mint and mix it all in a bowl. Put in fridge to cool. So simple and delicious.

You could always get twisted on Pimms Cups while hanging in a Gazebo on a hot summer day.

slice some kirbies and a sweet onion. add enough vinegar to make it pretty wet and enough sugar to cut the vinegar.

i've made a really nice dip with sour cream, cream cheese, cilantro and cucumbers before. really nice and light on a summer day.

you can also make a bulgarian chopska salad which is a variation on the cucumber salad. you add lemon juice, celery and bulgarian feta to it. it's pretty damn good.

i just recently had a very good cucumber/rosewater sorbetto, but i don't have the recipe for it.

I agree with Carney, but substitute onions for mozzarella cheese and use a mix of balsamic vin, xtra virgin olive oil, salt, pepper and minced garlic and whisk it until it becomes thick. Perfect salad.
