Did you know that fresh Cucumbers hold other benefits for your body besides it being good for your skin?

Well here are ALL of the wonderful benefits contained in fresh cucumbers:

  • 1. They hydrate and beautify your skin, hair and nails.
  • 2. They cleanse your bloodstream of toxic waste.
  • 3. They help with obesity and reducing fat in the body.
  • 4. They alkalize your body and facilitate the elimination of acid from animal-based foods from your body (if you eat meat)

(Source: 'Foods & Their Healing Power')


And because Cucumbers are "among the lowest calorie vegetables" due to their high water content, you can indulge in my 'Cheesy Honey Mustard Dip' without feeling one ounce of regret. Enjoy!

Or maybe you would like to serve your guests more than one condiment, sauce or dip, so that they can have choices. Then this container with cover lid, 5 removable and separate containers and a place to put your ice, will keep them all fresh for hours.

Plus, I really like the fact that it is transparent! It does add a nice appealing touch to your food table - display all the lovely colours of your condiments, sauces or dips.

      Mayo with a small amount of ketchup is my favorite dressing, while I love to dip fried foods in vinegar. Thanks for sharing this yummy cucumber recipe. I just love cucumber especially the ones with the dark green skin.

      I like anything spicy, and I love cheddar cheese and horseradish together. I think I would like this dip; a lot of good flavors involved, and I love cucumbers.
