Cucumbers – Menu Plan June 17

Posted By Heather On June 17, 2013 @ 12:52 am In Menu Plan | No Comments


Cucumbers [3]The theme for this week’s Gluten-Free Menu Swap is Cucumbers. The roundup of other gluten-free meals will be included below as others link up their menus for the week.

I’ve been noticing “Cucumbers for Pickling” at the Famers’ Market this month. I’ve never made pickles myself, but would love to try making some Sweet Bread and Butter Pickles [4]. I’m hoping to get the kids to help me with this quick and easy recipe at The Smitten Kitchen [4]. If you’ve got a good recipe, send it my way.

Another cucumber delight I’ve been thinking about is Cucumber Sandwiches with a creamy garlic dill spread. I haven’t made them for years, but I’m thinking it is time. I’ll try to get a quick recipe for it posted this week.

Other ways we like to eat cucumber is fresh slices in salads (like my 7-layer Salad [5]) and fresh cut spears in wraps [6]. I also found a couple new cucumber salad recipes to try with our meals this week.

The Gluten-Free Menu Swap roundup will be included below. Don’t forget to check it for more gluten-free menus and recipe links.
