Is there anything on this earth more refreshing than cucumbers? Even when you leave them sitting in the sun for an hour or four, they somehow never seem to lose their cool. Wouldn't we all like to be like that?

You can dip them in hummus, dunk them in ranch, or douse them in dressing -- cucumbers will never lose their inherent cuke-ness. Even in a spicy dish, the humble cucumber will dial down the heat just the right amount.

More: Get the best out of all your raw veggies this summer. 

With their waxy green skin and crunchy seeds that pop between your teeth, cucumbers are the best summer vegetable to toss into everything you make this season.
