HEALTHY SNACK RECIPE OF THE DAY

Cucumber and Peach Salad

This is a fresh, summery salad fav: but of course you can really make this at any time! the cucumber is crunchy and the peach is juicy, and they look so pretty together. If you want to make something more like a salsa to scoop up with chips, just cut everything into smaller pieces. We just mixed what veggies and fruits we had left in the frige and It turned out great! nothing fancy but really good!
