Cooking Tip Cucumber
Before you cut up the cucumber taste it. The skin may be bitter. If this is the case you can peel it then slice. The salad still tastes wonderful without the skin on it.
When you are at the market make sure that you select very firm cucumbers. They last in the fridge generally up to 4 days so if you are shopping and plan on making the salad at a later date you want to make sure you still have a good cucumber.
