Rice Vinegar Cucumber Salad

Minoo requested for volunteers to demonstrate for the South Arm Community Kitchen which was temporarily held at Bethel Church while South Arm kitchen is under renovation. It looks like the renovation is going to take much longer than anticipated.


Minoo got Emily and Lorna to partner up for this week’s demonstration. Emily made three simple homey dishes. The first is a side dish of Rice Vinegar Cucumber Salad.

Cucumber is a good source of Vitamin C, Vitamin A, potassium, manganese, folate, dietary fiber and magnesium. The skin of cucumber has the heaviest concentration of sterols which helps to lower cholesterol. Cucumber is a great digestive aid and have a cleansing effect on the bowel. It is low in calories and is great for people on a diet.
