I enjoy eating cucumbers. I love the refreshing crunch every time I bite into one. They have become one of my favorite snacks. I also like Medjool dates. I could just eat them with nuts and a glass of San Pelligrino. Perfection. This salad is a combination of all the above because I served it with a glass of San Pelligrino and a slice of lemon. 😉
2 English cucumbers
1 red bell pepper diced
1/2 onion diced
4 Medjool dates diced

1/4 tsp salt

1 tbsp olive oil
Slice cucumbers and then cut into fours.
Add bell pepper, onion and dates. Toss together till mixed.
Whisk together vinaigrette ingredient and mix into the salad.
Serve immediately or place in airtight container and enjoy the next day.
Someone asked me about protein intake during a juice fast. Spirulina is a SUPERFOOD that packs more protein than red meat.
Spirulina is a plant that nourishes your body by providing most of the protein you need to live. Spirulina helps relieve allergy symptoms, reinforce your immune system, help control high blood pressure and cholesterol. It also helps prevent cancer.
