Recipe Ingredients for Light Cucumber Salad

1 cucumber
1 red onion, sliced thinly
1 large tomato, on the vine
1 tablespoon sesame oil
2 tablespoon fat free italian dressing
1 dash of pepper
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 dill to taste

Recipe Directions for Light Cucumber Salad

  1. Wash cucumbers and tomatoes. Peel cucumbers halfway, leaving a scant amount of peel (helps with digestion). Slice cucumbers into 1/4 inch coins (circles). Slice onion thinly and cut once more lengthwise to dice.

  2. With a sharp knife, remove stem and blossom end from tomato (a very small amount). Dice tomato into cubes, being careful not to crush and lose juice.

  3. Place tomatoes and cucumbers in salad bowl and sprinkle with sea salt or kosher salt. Add sesame oil and italian dressing, mix well. Serve at room temperature.
