Cucumber and Herb Salad with Pine Nuts
For this salad, leave the skins on the cucumbers, and mix varieties. For our photo, we used a combination of typical Persian and unique lemon cucumbers. Lovage is a great cucumber herb--lively but not overwhelming. If you have it, use it in place of the celery leaves and flat-leaf parsley. Or change directions and go for dill, another natural with cukes.
