Healthy, because

Even smarter

The cucumber not only makes the cold dish an absolute fresh kick, but also gives it a beautiful appearance: the water contained in high quantities "cushions" the skin and increases the daily fluid intake in a playful and easy way. A cucumber ferment closely related to insulin can also have a positive effect on the blood sugar level.

Instead of sesame seeds, the cold peel can also be enhanced with trout caviar, for example. The cold dish can be served with flat bread or as a starter without a side dish.
