Balsamic Cucumber Salad

Rather than tossing into a  salad, let cucumbers stand solo with this refreshing, zesty side dish that takes just minutes to make. Light, cool and crisp, cukes are known for their high water content, but they’re also a great source of vitamin C (supplying six percent of the Daily Value per cup!), vitamin K and potassium. Choose the long, thin English variety for semi-seedless slices and mild, rarely bitter taste.
