Cucumber salad with Green mango dressing

It is a very hot summer this time in Norway and it almost reach 35 degrees some days. Since it is sunny here even at night, we usually like to have a cold salad before dinner.

Cucumber is a summer vegetable with a lot of health benefits. It keeps the body hydrated, controls blood pressure and reduces cholesterol. It is low in calories and cools the body and quenches summer thirst.

Cucumber salad with Green mango dressing is a perfect salad for a hot day/night. I usually do not discard the juice of cucumber since it is healthy and makes salad juicy.
