Cucumbers are a good source of vitamins' C, A and K. They are loaded with potassium and low in cholesterol, sodium and saturated fat. That's all the information you are going to get from me on that subject. These are my own home recipes and I wouldn't know where to start counting their calories. Relax, enjoy the fruits of your labor!

cup pitted Greek olives?
