Sesame And Cucumber Salad

Today I am sharing with you all a very delicious Asian flavored Sesame Cucumber salad. Cucumber is very healthy a good source of Vitamin B. Cucumbers are 95 percent water, keeping the body hydrated while helping the body eliminate toxins. Cucumbers have most of the vitamins the body needs in a single day. Don't forget to leave the skin on because the skin contains a good amount of vitamin C, about 10 percent of the daily-recommended allowance. Take a slice of cucumber and press it to the roof of your mouth with your tongue for 30 seconds, the phytochemcials will kill the bacteria in your mouth responsible for causing bad breath. To avoid a morning hangover or headache; eat a few cucumber slices before going to bed. Cucumbers contain enough sugar, B vitamins and electrolytes to replenish many essential nutrients, reducing the intensity of both hangover and headache. Due to its low calorie and high water content, cucumber is an ideal diet for people who are looking for weight loss. I am sure you will find this salad healthy and delicious too. Give Sesame Cucumber Salad a try and let me know how you like it.
