Cucumber Aeru

I started growing cucumbers in the garden this year and needed a quick and new way to enjoy the fresh flavors. I also like to mix in some rice noodles for a different twist. It goes really well with just about anything you pack up for a picnic. It will keep in the fridge for up to two weeks.
