Cool Cucumber Salad

Cucumbers are a natural diuretic and this fresh cold salad is perfect for hot, humid days when you feel not only bloated but sweaty and uncomfortable. Even more, cucumbers are one of those “barely there” veggies, with few calories.

This is the recipe I usually make but you can also toss in fresh tomatoes and thinly sliced red onions or whatever else you have in your fridge.


– 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar (or less, if you want)
– 1 tablespoon of chopped fresh dill (or your fave herb)
– 1 teaspoon honey
– 1 teaspoon lemon juice
– Salt and pepper to taste
– 1 medium cucumber, peeled and thinly sliced


Peel and thinly slice cucumber into a bowl. Whisk together remaining ingredients and pour over cucumbers.
