Anything you can do we can do vegan.

Cucumber Mania

Walking back from the garden just now we ran into our next door neighbor who said "I love cucumbers" as we were pawning off as many as possible on her. She's probably going to regret saying that.

I have two cucumber recipes to post - both from vegan cookbooks I use all the time. The first is Persian Cucumber and Tomato Salad from The Mediterranean Vegan Kitchen: Meat-Free, Egg-Free, Dairy-Free Dishes from the Healthiest Region Under the Sun by Donna Klein. The second is Cucumber Salad with Wa-Fu Dressing from Japanese Cooking: Contemporary & Traditional by Miyoko Nishimoto Schinner. As a bonus I am also posting a recipe adapted from the Japanese cookbook: Sesame Sweet Potato Salad.

I hope to post a separate blog about what cookbooks we own and use all the time. The two we own by Donna Klein are gems as is the one by Miyoko Nishimoto Schinner. Luckily they both have a few more cucumber recipes as there are quite a few more to come...
