cucumber beet salad

Hi all! As I type this, I wonder where this weekend went…

It has been a very eventful one! I co-hosted a ZUMBAthon and it was an incredibly sweaty two-hour long cardio session. It was amazing to see how many people supported us and the cause (cancer awareness).

You would think that after two hours of Zumba, I would want a rest day the next day, right? Wrong. I went on a bike ride this morning, which was super fun and also super sweaty.

After all of the cardio and sweat that has happened this weekend, all I have been craving is some fresh and healthy food, like salad, which I hardly ever crave!

So I thought it was only fitting that I share with you this recipe for a cucumber beet salad. It is so refreshing, and is slightly sweet, slightly salty, and slightly spicy. A little bit of everything!

Cucumber Beet Salad (Makes 3-4 servings)

Ingredients:

  • 2 cucumbers
  • 1 package of Trader Joe’s steamed and peeled beets (or 3 large beets, steamed and peeled)
  • a handful of mint leaves
  • juice of 1/2 lemon
  • salt, to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon chaat masala

Directions:

Slice the cucumbers and beets into small pieces. Add to a large bowl with the mint leaves. Squeeze lemon juice, and add salt and chaat masala. Mix well and serve.

Processed with Snapseed.
