Cool Off with Cucumbers
Whether you enjoy cucumbers pickled, fresh or even sauteed, this member of the gourd family will keep you cool this spring. Cucumbers are fat free, sodium free and a good source of Vitamin C. Choose firm cucumbers with dark green color that are heavy for their size. Look for Colorado cucumbers at your local farmers market, grocery store or at restaurants across the state. Each month the Colorado Department of Agriculture features a different commodity to highlight the variety and quality of products grown in the state.
