Can you ever have too many cucumber salad recipes?

Summer is a'coming, and even if that means that us pregnant rollypollies will be staying mostly indoors, I still plan to enjoy summer-time treats. And this sounds perfect for a hot day:

This recipe is courtesy of genkileslie.

Cut a cucumber or two into thin slices, and mix with about a teaspoon of salt.
After 10 - 15 minutes, the cucumber slices should be limp. Squeeze as much water from the cucumber slices as you can.
Chop finely 1 or 2 cloves of garlic and mix with a pinch of salt.
Add about 250cc to 500cc of plain yogurt
add chopped garlic
add chopped fresh parsley
add pepper and salt to taste

This salad can be eaten right away but usually tastes better after sitting in the fridge overnight.
