Zesty Cucumber Salad http://www.davita.com/recipes/salads and salad dressings/zesty-cucumber-salad/a/5177

DaVita renal dietitian MaryKay from Indiana shares her recipe for a chilled cucumber salad that works with dialysis, diabetic and CKD non-dialysis diets and is a cinch to make. Cucumbers and red onions are covered with Kraft® Light Done Right®! Italian salad dressing and sugar (or sugar substitute) and allowed to marinate in the fridge for 30 minutes or longer. It’s the kind of kidney-friendly dish you can make ahead for your next party or picnic. Cholesterol-free, it’s also low in calories, fat, carbs, protein, sodium, potassium, phosphorus and calcium.
