Hope you all enjoyed Super Bowl Sunday! But if you are like me, and may have went a little overboard with all the game day goodies, then my take on a Japanese Cucumber Salad Recipe is the perfect cool and crisp side salad to add to your meal today. It’s so light and refreshing, and at just 1 Point, it’s a great way to bulk up a meal without using a lot of your Weight Watchers Points. It’s a great flavor combination of sweet and sour, and the toasted sesame seeds add a nice, delicate nutty flavor. Bonus – the cucumbers have an anti-inflammatory effect and are very hydrating, so it’s a great way to combat all the sodium from the salty foods you may have indulged in. This Japanese Cucumber Salad also makes a great side to a many meals (not just sushi!). I love it with a spicy fish or chicken dish. Definitely one of my favorite low Points Weight Watchers salads recipes. Enjoy!
