Be as cool as a cucumber with our summer salads! If like me, you’ve been enjoying the summer sunshine, but occasionally feeling a little too hot, then you’ll be pleased to hear that it is possible to reduce the effects of heat by eating “cool foods” to help you lower body temperature.
Foods such as watermelons, cucumbers, apples, and some leafy greens can do just that. So I’ve put together 3 quick and easy cucumber salads for you, that I promise will only take minutes to prepare and will be perfect either on their own, as a side to a summer BBQ, or to accompany your Jane Plan lunch or dinner.
Cucumber and Radish Salad
3 tbsp rice vinegar
1 tbsp castor sugar
A few splashes of sesame oil
2 spring onions
