a cool, refreshing cucumber salad with a mint yogurt dressing that’s the perfect side to any spicy meal

This is a go-to salad when paired with a spicy meal. It’s refreshing, cool, and minty. It loaded with vegetables. All the vegetables in this salad have a high fluid-content. This is important especially if drinking adequate amounts of water daily is something that your struggle with. The recommended daily intake of water is eight 8 oz. glasses or half a gallon. Often-times we can replenish our water intake with fruits and vegetables that have a high water content. We can get up to 20% of our recommended water intake with high fluid foods so it important to aim to incorporate them in our daily diets.
