1 large or 2 medium cucumbers
1 TBS of butter
1 tsp of lemon juice
a dash of salt
a pinch of dried mint
Begin by peeling your cucumber. Make sure to wash the skin before you peel it.
Cut into quarters and remove the seeds.
Slice into one inch chunks.
Heat butter in a large skillet, over medium heat, and add the cucumbers once it has melted.
Cover and cook over medium for 5 minutes.
Add in lemon juice, salt and mint. For the record- I had a jar of dried mint in a spice rack I had received as a gift. I don't care for mint, and it had never been opened, but I busted it out for this recipe!
Ta-da! I've never really enjoyed cucumbers. I eat them on my salads, or as pickles, but they certainly aren't something I seek out. Now- I LOVE them! What a unique concept. Totally surprising- even Robyn gobbled them up! Next, I'll try Julia's actual recipe...Concombres au Beurre!
