These cool, crunchy cucumbers ? don’t often get as much credit as their cruciferous counterparts (broccoli and cauliflower), but they should! They can be used to make this simple side dish: NO cooking even required! Cucumbers are an excellent source of Vitamin K, have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties due to their phytonutrient profile, which may help fight cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, and cancer. Plus, cucumbers are low in calories (only 16 calories per cup), but high in water content, and very filling, so feel free to enjoy a nice big serving!
