Summer weather is ideal for planning menus with simple, no-fuss foods like a refreshing Armenian Cucumber Salad. Flavored with orange flower water, sugar and a little lemon juice, this grated salad is best served chilled.
In Morocco, Armenian cucumbers are called feggous. They're longer and skinnier than regular cucumbers, with textured, ridged skin. You might also try them in this Chopped Feggous and Tomato Salad, or simply slice a chilled feggous and eat it plain or with a sprinkling of salt or sugar.
