Cucumber Limeade

Inspiration:
A cucumber from our CSA and Everyday Food

Ingredients:
  • 1 English cucumber, (about 1 pound)
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1/4 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 1 cup ice cubes

Instructions:
  1. Peel English cucumber; remove any seeds. Coarsely chop and combine in a blender with water, sugar, lime juice, coarse salt, and ice cubes; blend until smooth.
  2. Serve over ice, garnished with cucumber spears, if desired.

Notes: The flavor was good. I didn't care for the texture; I don't like smoothies, so it's not too surprising. The flavor combination was good; I will continue to have ice water with cucumber and lime slices!

Tim's Rating: 8/10 ("Not sure about the texture.")
Liz's Rating: 7/10
