Seedy Cucumber Salad – Serves 4+

This salad literally takes FIVE minutes to prepare if not less and it only has FIVE ingredients.  Basically if you want something super easy to prepare – this is it!  This salad is both crunchy and tangy making it the perfect compliment for whatever your entree fancy may be!  As soon as I made this salad, I literally couldn’t keep my hands off of it, mouthgasm 101.

If you did not know, cucumbers are an excellent source of hydration, and a single 8-ounce cup is just as hydrating as an equivalent amount of water.  Cucumbers are low in calories and rich in anti-inflammatory properties.  Even though there are many, many more benefits of cucumbers to discuss, I will list my favorite which is their ability to cool and soothe (Hint: think of when you’ve sipped on cucumber water at the spa or when you’ve put cucumbers over your eyes to relieve puffiness).
