This was just so beautiful. I saw it at the Morningside farmer's market and couldn't resist. You don't expect the clean, fresh flavor of a cucumber from this round fruity looking thing but there it is. It went into what Melanie says was the best salad yet for this summer: grilled eggplant, lemon cucumber, goat cheese, pine nuts and sungold cherry tomatoes tossed with arugula.
