Don't Die of Hunger Have Cucumber Salad

First know that cucumbers are very nutritious and the best natural diuretic known, secreting and promoting the flow of urine.

Nutritive Values : Per 1 cup

  • Vitamin A 180 I.U.
  • Niacin Trace
  • Vitamin C 9 mg.
  • Calcium 32 mg.
  • Iron 1.8 mg.
  • Phosphorus 27 mg.
  • Potassium 80 mg.
  • Carbohydrates 17 gm.
OK For your Recipe.
-3 English Cukes peeled 9-10 inches = 120 cals. slice nice +thin
-2 level tbsp Mayo 200C (you can use low fat if you want +reduce Cals.)
-3 tbsps finely chopped fresh or dried Dill (or handfuls more if you love dill)
-3 green onion finely chopped
-2 small garlic cloves grated
-1/4 cup apple cider vinegar (really any vinegar will do, but apple has great health benefits)
-Salt pepper and sweetener ( I like it sweet) to taste. Add a little at a time it will marinate +become stronger

OK toss all of it together. The salt will make the cucumbers more watery in a short time. Add more sweetener, salt and pepper to taste about 10 minutes later. It should be very saucey, so keep tossing the cukes in the sauce.

Eat as much as you want, but really it makes 3 (three) portions of 112 calories each.


  1. I happen to like it salty, peppery and sweet.

  2. OH also, most of the Mayo stays in the sauce, so if you don't eat too much of it, you can cut back the calories by at least 100.

  3. Cucumbers are great! I love them best cut thick with salt. I never looked into the nutrients, so thanks for that!
