Raw Cucumber Tart with basil-coriander pesto

Because I have a lot of cucumbers in my garden, I decided to cook them in a tart. Yes in a tart because I eat them in salad and juice since two days. So, I have to change my meals! This tart is raw because I want to have the all benefits of cucumbers (silica, vitamin A, B1, B6, C & D, Folate, Calcium, Magnesium, and Potassium). So, bon appêtit!
