If dehydrating, peel them-the skin tends to become bitter.  Enjoy dried slices as you would chips.  Good for dipping.

Sweet pickle relish.  How much do you use in a year?

To freeze, peel, shred and drain.  Can be added to moist breads such as spice bread or zuchinni bread.

Gazpacho.  You can put it up in jars or freeze it.

If you keep a running jar of fresh cuke slices as they come in from the garden, you can cover them with 1/2 rice vinegar and 1/2 toasted sesame oil (yummy!). Then you can always add herbs and spices to season the jar, like dill, garlic, and chiles.
