[tps_title]Cucumbers[/tps_title]FL_SummerVeggies_700_cucumberCucumbers are made up of mostly water but also contain many different nutrients that benefit the body. They are known for being rich in vitamin C and Silica, which is important for healthy skin and tissue growth. The outer green skin contains potassium, magnesium, and fiber, and I like to eat them raw with dips or throw them in my salads and soups.
