Ah, interesting.

If I buy a sandwich or salad and there are bits of cucumber in there, I can't eat any of it as the taste is all over the other food. <<<shivers>>.

:-) I like a burger you have to pull to pieces. I'm not fussed by beetroot either way.

Yeah, that pretty much sums up how I have felt about cucumber my whole life. It utterly ruins any meal that it is placed on, completely infecting the taste of the rest of it.

One of my favourite burgers is Hungry Jack's Aussie burger, which has a slice of beetroot. Yum.

Cucumber rocks as does beetroot. As for that purple lettuce, avocado, asparagus - pukeola!

Definitely not me

I was quite horrified some years back to order a Pimms and Lemonade in a bar in The Cross to discover that it came with a slice of cucumber! Now I know that's how it's meant to be served, but for goodness sake - in a shitty bar in The Cross I would have thought they would have glossed over that little detail!
