Expert Tips

Cucumbers contain a higher percentage of water, which translates to fewer calories for the same weight of food. That's good news for your waistline!

“Provençal” refers to ingredients—such as tomatoes—that are common to the cuisine of Provence, a region in southeastern France.

Unwaxed English cucumbers have a sweet, delicate flavor and few or no seeds, so they’re a great choice for this appetizer.
