What do you see when I say ‘cucumber’? Thin green slices, to put on your face and eyelids after a hard night out or a long day broiling on the beach? Thin green slices on thinly sliced bread, melting in your mouth at tea time? Thin green slices, tossed with lots of garlic and sour cream—the perfect accompaniment to a juicy schnitzel? Something green you wouldn’t dream of eating, no matter how it’s sliced, because it makes you burp for hours and hours?
