I'm living in France right now, and my parents sent me a care package including taco seasoning mix! Tonight I was trying to figure out what to do with the 2 cucumbers someone sold me by mistake (I guess when you run out of courgettes you just sell cucumbers?!?!) because I'm not a big cucumber fan. I figured it couldn't hurt. Mmm. Tangy. Warning: do not try this if you don't like sour. I didn't add any sugar at all. Warning 2: I don't measure, I eyeball. I'll list ingredients, but it's up to you how much to add.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 cucumbers (burpless, if possible)
  • 1 tablespoon taco seasoning mix
  • 12 lemon, juice of


  1. Peel and slice cucumbers very thinly. Oscar Wilde-style thin, people.
  2. Add taco mix and lemon juice.
  3. Mix. Chill. Enjoy.

We love lemon on our cucumbers, so this wasn't tart or sour for us. I used half the taco seasoning, but it was still plenty. This would make a nice side dish for tacos or a taco like dish.

We have a garden full of cucumbers. This was a pretty neat way to make them. You are right! These suckers are sour! Then there was the small bit of heat from the taco seasoning. I thought these 3 simple ingredients mixed very nice. Thanks!! :)
