Fried Cucumbers

"My husband isn't crazy about fried green tomatoes, but he loves these. This is a different and easy way to use up all the cucumbers in the garden! They can be dipped in ranch dressing, horseradish sauce, or salsa."

I wasn't too impressed with the texture of the cornmeal and it didn't stick too good. Next time I'll work them up like I do zucchini. I'd cut the cucumbers about 1/4 inch thick, sprinkle with sa...
