Cliché: cool as a cucumber

Meaning: cool and calm. Meanings and mentions.
Rewrite 1: cool as a frosty
Rewrite 2: cool as a springtime morning
Rewrite 3: calm and quiet like a sleeping
Rewrite 4: the calm demeanor of a cucumber

Comment: I’m struggling here between creating metaphors and imagining similes that truly fit the original mind’s image. To restate the cliché with a different vegetable likely won’t improve the comparison.
