Cucumber Chile Powder Snack


Ever since I can remember, cucumbers have been my favorite vegetable.  I love them in big salads but I am just as content have a bowl full of cucumbers.  I stumbled across a new flavor to add to cucumbers from one of my favorite blogs, Wellness Mama.  I follow her on Pinterest and one of her pins suggested adding chile powder to cucumbers.  Sounds weird, but I had to try it.  Did you know chile powder has significant amounts of Vitamin A and Vitamin C?  I didn’t!  Try this healthy and out of the box cucumber snack. 

Chop up one baby cucumber and add lemon juice, olive oil, salt, pepper, and chile powder.  I bet you’re surprised at how yummy this is!
