Cucumber is a water-dense vegetable, known to be crunchy and refreshing, with a subtle flavour. It's most often used in salads, drinks, and condiments to provide a fresh kick.

Cucumbers aren't nutrient-dense, with the only notable nutrient being its vitamin K contents. They do however have a few beneficial phytonutrients including lignans and cucurbitacins that have associations with protection from cancer.
