Spicy Asian Cucumber Salad!
This cucumber salad is so delicious! I love to eat it as a healthy snack and to serve it as a side dish for BBQ's and get togethers! It only takes 5 minutes to put together and is bursting with flavor and crunch! Cucumbers are high in nutrients, antioxidants, they promote hydration, and can help with overall bone health, and inflammation!

~Cucumbers hold a ton of water, so to ensure that the dressing doesn't become watery you will need to add one more step to this recipe. After you slice the cucumbers sprinkle sea salt on top. Cover and place in the refrigerator for 15 minutes. Drain the excess water and then add the dressing on top.*
~If you are serving a larger crowd you can double/triple the recipe.
