LIGHT AND HEALTHY MARINATED CUCUMBERS
go to recipe

This simple and light marinated cucumber recipe is made with whole food ingredients and makes a tasty and healthy snack or side dish. They almost taste like pickles, but not quite – they’re a bit less tangy but will still make your jaw tingle. There’s also a healthy dose of nutrients packed into this simple dish, which I’ll talk about further down.

Let’s talk about the deceiving health benefits from this yummy dish.

First, avocado oil offers fiber, and fiber is something we all need to increase in our diets. It’s also rich in vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin B-6, iron, magnesium, potassium, and monounsaturated fats.

Next, the main star – apple cider vinegar. I’m sure you’ve heard that it’s good for you. It really is. Really really is. It has special strains of healthy bacteria (when you buy organic and unfiltered kind, like this one) that work wonders on your gut. It also has unique proteins and enzymes that help with gastrointestinal health. Studies have shown that is also aids in weight loss and lowering blood pressure.

Lastly, Cucumbers. Although mainly water, they still offer a healthy dose of Vitamin K (about 1 cup of sliced cucumbers will fuel your body with around 15% of your daily Vitamin K needs), vitamin A, vitamin C, phosphorus, copper, potassium, and magnesium.

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Combine all ingredients in a serving bowl.
  • Place in the fridge overnight, or for at least 12 hours, then enjoy!

Notes

  • If you aren't a fan of a strong vinegar flavor, cut it down to 1/4 cup of apple cider vinegar. You can mess around with the water and vinegar ratio - I sometimes am in the mood for basically a pickle, so I up the vinegar 🙂
