Borage ?

Just bought a pot of borage and planted it in my garden. It is deer resistant. (yay!) and the leaves and flowers supposedly taste like cucumbers .
Any ideas for using it?

They are beautiful in a salad with nasturtiums. The blue and orange flowers really look great together.

Thanks everyone... Maybe I should get some more plants! Let's hope they really are " deer resistant" .Trena , I love Nasturtiums ,and used to to plant them every year , putting them in salads and on cakes,until they became beloved by both deer and raccoons.

Borage will also self-seed, if you let it.
