Cucumber salad

Posted on August 3, 2009. Filed under: Diabetes/diabetic recipe, Starter | Tags: , , , |

Cucumber is a vegetable with a high water content and is therefore relatively low in calories and carbohydrates. Try having cucumber with its peel which itself is a great source of fibre and many more nutrients. The fat free lemon juice and soya sauce dressing enhances this salad, especially when it is served chilled.

Cooking Time : Nil.
Preparation Time : 15 mins.

Serves 4.

Ingredients
1 cup cucumber, peeled and diced
1 cup tomatoes, deseeded and cubed
1 cup spring onions, sliced
To be mixed into a dressing
½ green chilli, finely chopped
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
1 teaspoon soya sauce
a pinch sugar substitute
juice of ½ lemon
salt to taste
Method
1. Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and toss the salad.
2. Serve immediately.
Tips
You can make large quantities of this dressing and refrigerate it till required.
I often blend all the ingredients in a blender or grind them in a “silbatta” so that all the ingredients marry well.
