Too many cucumbers?

It seems like it has been a great year for cucumbers! They are plentiful in gardens and farmer's markets right now. Cucumbers are delicious sliced and eaten raw, by themselves or in a sandwich with lowfat cream cheese. If you looking for another way to serve those cukes, here is a great recipe to use.

Creamy Cucumber Salad

you will need:
9 cups thinly sliced cucumbers (peeled or not)
8 green onions, thinly sliced
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup nonfat plain yogurt
1/2 cup reduced-fat mayonnaise
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup fat-free evaporated milk
1/4 cup cider vinegar
2 drops Tabasco sauce

In a large bowl, combine the first five ingredients and stir well. In a small bowl, combine the remaining ingredients; pour over cuke mixture and toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours before serving.
