Asian Cucumber Salad

low FODMAP foods - asian cucumber salad

I love how simple and easy this cucumber salad recipe is to make.  It’s a dish you can make in advance as the flavors get even better the longer it stays in the refrigerator.  Cucumbers are a staple in my low FODMAP foods list.

Did you know just how many health benefits there are to eating cucumbers?!  I did some research and some of my favorite benefits are:

  • Aids in hydration
  • Can help lower blood pressure
  • An anti-inflammatory substance called Fisetin is in cucumbers which plays an important roll in brain health
  • Protects your skin against the effects of aging (bring on the cucumbers!)
  • Fights inflammation and reduces the risk of cancer
  • Low-calorie snack & contains fiber in the skin

Now go snack on!
