lemon cucumbers and recipe to make Lemon Cucumber Tzatziki

Disclosure: I have received a Produce Box free of charge and I was not expected to write this post. I was not financially compensated form my time Opinions are my own.

It’s always a high point in my week, when  I get my fruits and vegetables from the Produce Box. I  love anticipating that little something extra that gets tuck in. This week, the lemon cucumbers grown by  Johnston County  farmer, Charles Tart, were the bomb. I ‘m blown away by this round yellow cucumber, with flavor that hints lemon. My recipe is below for how  I used this cool cuke in a  tzatziki sauce.
