English Cucumbers and Sweet Basil

I returned home yesterday from my trip away. I am slowly finding some energy, the 11 hour bus ride home wore me out...
I was very surprised when checking out the greenhouse yesterday afternoon to find an abundance of cucumbers and that I have to get busy making pesto. I just picked 8 large English cukes, so I better find some friends who like them! 8 is a bit much for the two of us to eat. Does anyone have any great recipes for cucumbers?

Five I make a salad that uses cucumbers which is really good.

Here's a photo and the recipe
