Mini cucumbers salad-Taiwanese style


Mini Cucumbers-5
Grinded Garlic-1 small teaspoon
Salt-1small teaspoon
Sesame oil-1 small teaspoon
Chili -1 (optional)


1. Wash all the cucumbers and chop them into thin slices.
2. Season them with garlic, salt, sesame oil and chili. Use a big spoon to mix them together.
3. Serve ( if you leave them overnight, the flavour will be even better. If you want to make the dish look better, you can use red chili, instead of green one. )

Health Benefits of Cucumbers:
Cucumber is an excellent source of silica, which is a trace mineral that contributes to the strength
of our connective tissue.  Connective tissue is what holds
our body together.  Cucumbers are effective when used for various skin problems, including swelling under the eyes and sunburn.  They also contain ascorbic and caffeic acids.  These acids prevent water retention.  That may explain why when cucumbers
are applied topically they are often helpful for swollen eyes, burns, and dermatitis.
