Why not to mix tomato with cucumber?

Lovely salad for your lunch? You might think:  yes! this is the perfect snack! Mind you words!

However it is still better than processed ready lunch you can get from any supermarket nowadays, tomato and cucumber does not complement each other. Surprised?

Tomato is a great source of vitamin C, while cucumber contains particular enzyme which ‘kills’ vitamin C. So if you want to reap the benefits of cucumber as a great source of minerals and vitamins (mainly vitamin A) and tomato as a vegetable full of vitamin C, do not mix them!
