Felling a little raw? Try my cucumber salad, it will make your mouth say WOW. Cucumbers make a great fruit snack or in a salad all by themselves. This is a quick less than 10 min meal and it tastes great. Cucumbers can be eaten raw or cooked, or pickled. The fresh cucumber seeds are a source of vitamin C, vitamin K, and potassium, also providing dietary fiber, vitamin A, vitamin B6, thiamin, folate, pantothenic acid, magnesium, phosphorus, copper, and manganese.

-1 teaspoons salt
-1cup Rice Wine white vinegar
-3/4 water
