We’re still trying to figure out why we’ve never had a successful cucumber-growing season. Normally we’ll get a batch of about ten cucumbers that look great, but after that, our cucumber vines fizzle into oblivion. We’re still not giving up, and hopefully one year we’ll have enough to satisfy our cucumber cravings. It’s salads like this one that really let cucumbers shine and make us crave them even more; it’s full of crunchy freshness, and the mint-quinoa combination makes it a perfect summer picnic dish to share with friends.
