Cucumber-Carrot Salad http://www.davita.com/recipes/salads and salad dressings/cucumber-carrot-salad/a/5133

DaVita renal dietitian Kim from Michigan brings us a time-saving and healthy salad recipe that includes its own dressing. Fresh veggies, including carrots, cukes, green onions and red bell pepper, provide the color and crunch. A dressing of unseasoned rice vinegar, sugar, olive oil, pepper and Mrs. Dash® Italian Medley Seasoning Blend add the sweet and sour flavor. Even if you’re following a diabetic, dialysis or CKD non-dialysis diet, you can still include garden-fresh Cucumber-Carrot Salad in your meal plan. You’ll feel good knowing it’s low in calories, sodium and phosphorus and has zero fat and cholesterol.
