Cucumber Cilantro Margarita

As previously noted, if I could be any vegetable I would be a cucumber.

Here is even more evidence that a cucumber is one of the most diverse vegetables out there. Celebrate Cinco de Mayo with this cool Cucumber Cilantro Margarita! This recipe takes a healthy twist on the traditional Margarita which can run ~350 calories per drink. I replaced the traditional sugar loaded sour mix with a healthy (and also green) cucumber juice, and added a hint of cilantro flavor. This recipe pairs perfectly with our Chicken Fajita Bowl for a yummyΒ Cinco de Mayo dinner! Enjoy πŸ™‚
