          I only buy the english or hot house cucumbers, they are those long ones wrapped in plastic. The reason I buy those is that they don't have seeds. And Yes, I peel them, always

            Same as Nu - skins on if marinated. But for salads, I do half & half - I make stripes down the cuke with a vegetable peeler, so theres some skin on them for crunch and roughage.

                I really like cucumbers. I have a recipe for cucumber with sliced red onions in a sour cream dressing. Lately I been mixing cucumbers with tomatoes and feta cheese, in a oil / vinegar dressing, sometimes I also put black olives in it. So good. A change from the green salads.

                    If I am using an english cucumber, then I leave the skin on. If I am using a regular (with seeds) cuic, I peel it.
                    Communicate. It can't make things any worse!

                              I thought you were the Advisor for that part of the movie Nu. I thought I saw your name in the credits under Cucumber Lady Nuisance. Maybe I was wrong but....
