I am a spicy food fanatic. If it’s spicy, I’ll eat it. One of the good things about that is that most hot sauces/spicy seasonings are relatively low in Points, so I can use a lot of them to really flavor up my foods without adding on many if any at all, calories and Points. In fact, my vegetables are often just the vehicle for some spicy sauce or dressing that I love. And this Spicy Cucumber Salad Recipe that I’m sharing today is a pretty fantastic way to eat cucumbers.
The siracha-based dressing for this salad adds such tremendous flavor with a big kick of heat, but for just 1 Point per serving. So this is a great Weight Watchers side salad recipe that helps to fill me up without using a lot of Points.
I love this salad so much, I’ll often even throw it together for a late-night snack The crunch and the flavor help me tame that evening snack beast.
