recipe by Lori Ross
A standby of spas, cucumber water has a gentle, restorative effect, mild flavor and a provocative scent.
1 fresh cucumber washed and unpeeled (seeded optional)
8 cups water
Use a vegetable peeler to slice a dozen or so very thin ribbons of cucumber and add to a pitcher of fresh water. Chill for several hours in the refrigerator. Pour a glass, garnish with a piece of cucumber, lemon or lime and be transported to a cool green garden on a hot day.
