Cucumber Salad is an option for you this summer to stay hydrated, refreshed maintaining your healthy habits.
I use this option as a side salad for many dishes like curries or pasta. It tastes well with fried egg or vegetarian cutlets too. You can eat it on its own of course as a healthy snack between your meals. It’s highly recommended when you are looking to lose fat or to maintain a healthy diet. Kids will love it too. The poppy seeds make them so crunchy and tasty.
Cucumber has got a lot of health benefits. They are very low in calories as most of what they contain is water, but also they provide some good amount of Vitamin K, molybdenum, pantothenic acid, copper, phosphorus, Vitamin C, biotin, Vitamin B1, potassium, magnesium and manganese.
I love adding a couple of cucumber slices into a jar of water and hydrate myself with water of cucumber taste. It’s amazing with a combination of cucumber, lime, and fresh meant leaves, too.
Cucumbers phytonutrients like flavonoids, lignans or triterpenes play a role as an antioxidant agent in the body, lowering the risk of oxidative stress what means is anti-inflammatory.
