Crisp Cucumber Salsa: Note: 1/4 cup is only 16 calories! (If prepared as originally written) I substituted non-fat Greek yogurt for the sour cream, added mini bell peppers for color and turmeric, paprika, chipotle and onion powder to the seasoning. Served with Food Should Taste Good multigrain gluten free tortilla chips...Huge hit with the whole family!
Japanese Cucumber Salad Need a quick appetizer or side to go with an Asian main course: cucumbers. In Sichuan cuisine, cucumber salads are a great cooling refresher between bites of fiery dishes. Japan, Thailand, and Vietnam also have their own versions of cucumber salads. Easy recipe. Toss the cucumbers in salt, squeeze out excess water. Then mix the cucumber slices in a fragrant blend of sesame oil, rice vinegar, and soy sauce. http://appetiteforchina.com/recipes/japanese-cucumber-salad
