Expert Tips

Cucumbers may seem like an all-American vegetable, but they are thought to have originated in either India or Thailand.

Large cucumbers often have a lot of seeds, so you may want to remove them before adding cucumbers to the salad. Simply slice the cucumber lengthwise in half, and use a spoon to gently scoop out the seeds.
