Cucumbers are a quintessential healthy summer food – they’re low in calories (a whole cucumber only has 45!), have a high water content, and just make you feel refreshed. Cucumbers are a good source of Vitamin C, potassium, manganese, and magnesium, and an excellent source of Vitamin K, which plays a key role in blood coagulation and bone metabolism. The ½ cucumber called for in the following recipe will provide you with almost 1/3 of your Recommended Daily Intake of Vitamin K, as well as a host of other healthy nutrients.
