Cucumber Bliss

IMG_20120827_115946So many cucumbers in the garden this year!  Loving it – not only for their cooling effect on the body during the summer (high water content), but also for their high silica content, which is great for the skin!  Read more about the benefits of this super sexy fruit from The Natural Nurse® at  And be sure to slice up this quick salad for your day!

2 -3 cucumbers thinly sliced (tip: use the large slicer on the cheese grater)
1/2 cup large red onion, finely diced
1-2 tb parsley, finely chopped
~ 1 tb olive oil
~ 2 tb unseasoned rice vinegar (no sugar added!)
squeeze of lemon juice
sea salt to taste

Toss all ingredients together in a bowl.  Best if served after chilled in fridge for 30 minutes.
