Nutritional values

Cucumber gives lightness and freshness to the salad. It consists of 97 percent water and has just 12 calories per 100 grams. It is also rich in potassium, which ensures the right pressure in the cells and plays an important role for the energy reserves in the muscles.

Spring rolls, especially ones with lean protein go well with this for a quick protein boost.
