A cucumber from our CSA and Everyday Food
- 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
- 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.
- 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!
