Expert Tips

  • tip 1
    Cucumbers contain a higher percentage of water, which translates to fewer calories for the same weight of food. That's good news for your waistline!
  • tip 2
    “Provençal” refers to ingredients—such as tomatoes—that are common to the cuisine of Provence, a region in southeastern France.
  • tip 3
    Unwaxed English cucumbers have a sweet, delicate flavor and few or no seeds, so they’re a great choice for this appetizer.
