Food Friday: Cucumber Burger



I am always looking for ways to increase my green intake while enjoying classic foods I love. Growing up, I remember my uncle putting cucumbers on his burger. I thought this was the strangest thing, that is . . . until this week. Jimmy made burgers with really thin and delicious buns (thanks, Costco). I decided to get creative, so I chopped up some cucumber I'd purchased for a salad and added it to the burger. The cucumber had the right amount of crunch and freshness to make a perfect meal. I know we will enjoy our burger cucumber combination from now on.

  9. I recently fell in love with cucumbers. Hadn't had them in a long while. Love them on hot sandwiches like your burger because they hold their crunch nicely and don't wilt like lettuce. We had them in a pinch on shrimp po' boys.

  13. I'm pretty sure my mother buys those same buns, they're delicious! I toast them and put tomatoes on them; it's practically the only thing I eat when I go home for a visit.
