Cucumbers are a very good source of the vitamins C and the mineral molybdenum. They are also a good source of vitamin A, potassium, manganese, folate, dietary fibre and magnesium and contain the important mineral silica. The silica in cucumber is an essential component of healthy connective tissue, which includes muscles, tendons, ligaments, cartilage, and bone. Cucumber juice is often recommended as a source of silica to improve the complexion and health of the skin, plus cucumber's high water content makes it naturally hydrating - a must for glowing skin!
Pop in a salad or chop them up and chuck them in some cous cous - they are also one of the most popular finger foods with children. Or re-create a garden party and make some cucumber sandwiches (just make sure the crusts are cut-off if you're planning to impress!)
