Why you must make this Cucumber-roll up salad? Because, this salad not only has a visual wow-factor but also has refreshing taste notes.It is made with a melody of super healthy ingredients.
To begin with – Cucumbers, I promise you they are truly made to beat the summer heat. It’s great for staying hydrated, for weight loss and glowing skin as it helps flush out toxins! Moving on to the other ingredient Beetroot- Beets is all you need to spike your immune system and boost your hemoglobin levels. I can go on about all the other ingredients but am sure I have highlighted their benefits already in my other recipes…so am going to skip it and straight give you this recipe that will fetch you way too many compliments 🙂
Also, I recommend a chilled glass of Prosecco with it. Bon Appétit!
