Weight Watchers Monday ~ Cucumber Salad

 Cucumber salad is usually one of my favorite go-to salads.
It's easy to make, and can be prepared quickly for those last minute
dinner invites. You know the ones I'm talking about.....
What makes this cucumber salad special is, it's a Weight Watchers salad.
Yup, 0 WW points.
You can eat 12-14 cucumber slices per serving.
When I peel my cucumbers I like to leave a little of the skin on.
I cut off the ends and peel the cucumber so it looks like it has stripes.
The dark green color give the cucumber salad a much more pretty 
presentation. More inviting to eat.
I found this recipe at Nana's Recipe Box, through Pinterest, of course.
I made a couple changes, but nothing drastic.

Weight Watchers Cucumber Salad
(0 WW points, 12-14 slices per serving)

In a large measuring cup mix:
1/4 c. white vinegar
1 TBS lemon juice
2 tsp. liquid sweetener (Agave In The Raw)
1 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper
1/2 tsp. celery seed
Stir together and pour over sliced cucumber and onion.

In a med/large mixing bowl slice cucumber and onion:
1/2 of a medium sweet onion, sliced (I cut the slices in half and separated the rings)
3-4 medium cucumbers sliced (I used organic).

    1. I'm not on a diet either, but it's been nice eating healthy foods once a week. I have even dropped a few pounds without dieting.
