    Ronnie,

    I've gotten addicted to Smashed Cucumber Salad, a Woks of Life version of a Sichuan
    Summer cucumber salad. I make it basically every other day, and always have a bowl
    sitting around. Every time I pass through the kitchen, I take a chunk or two. Highest and
    best use for cukes from my garden I've ever found. For bigger, non-English cukes, I peel
    them before use.

    Sooo, you like wine and are looking for something good to read? Maybe *this* will do the trick! :)

    I've seen a few recipes like this one and they really appeal to me. I do plan on trying one out before the cucumber pipeline dwindles for the season. However, today I made what I expect will be my last batch of bread & butter pickles of the season . . .

    Not exactly my favorite cutting device but with about 7 pounds of cucumbers to process, it made the most sense.

    2 half-gallons, 1 quart and 1 pint.

    I often feel like a vegetable traffic controller this time of year. :D

    Bien fait Ronnie, that's a lot of cukes!

    I had a "v" mandolin just like that once, bought it from a guy hawking them in front of a Kaufhof department store in Düsseldorf. It worked pretty well until I broke the hand guard. Now I've got a Japanese version.

    Made smashed Sichuan cukes again today. I'm really addicted to them. Usually I have an open bowl of them on the counter in the kitchen now at all times. Folks just wander buy and randomly grab a bite.
