So this is what happens when you go grocery shopping with your think you are picking up zucchini and instead you grab cucumbers. I was so sad when I couldn't make a recipe in which zucchini was the star but I did see a fun way to spice up the ordinary cucumber. Super easy and feel free to change the spices according to your liking.

Spicy Cucumber Wedges
Adapted from A Foodie in her cooking hat
Makes 16 Slices

2 large cucumbers, washed and patted dry
1/4 teaspoon turmeric powder
1 teaspoon chili powder
2 teaspoon coriander powder
1/2 teaspoon salt

Peel the cucumbers using a vegetable peeler and cut the ends off if needed.

Cut the cucumber in half lengthwise and then cut those piece in half lengthwise. Cut those pieces in half so you have a total of 16 cucumber wedges. Arrange them neatly on a baking tray.

Mix the turmeric powder, chili powder, coriander powder and salt in a bowl.

Sprinkle them on top and refrigerate them for at least 10 minutes. Serve the cold spicy cucumber wedges on a platter.

Too cute! I love cucumbers. Even with a little rice vinegar, some chopped peanuts... yummy! They're so clean and fresh. Great save!

Going to the grocery with kids can be a wild adventure:D I can definitely relate to it!

Great idea for jazzing up these cucumbers. Not only are they healthy, but they look delicious.

This is a fantastic idea. I, too often, grab the wrong one, zucchini or cuke. That is what I get for racing through the store. I do what you did but never did I think of this. A great idea.
