Cucumbers, which are related to watermelon, pumpkin, and squash, are one of your best bets to keep you cool and hydrated all summer long. Even though cucumbers are mostly made of water, there is plenty of room in them for phytonutrients such as cucurbitacins, lignans, and flavonoids. They give us antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-cancer benefits. Cucumbers are also a good source of vitamin K, vitamin C, B vitamins, copper, potassium, and manganese. They help reduce stress, fight heart disease, support digestive health, help maintain weight, and even give you fresh breath. Cucumbers are an underappreciated veggie, and this recipe gives them the spotlight they deserve!
