26 Aug Cucumber Salsa
With the heat and humidity we are experiencing this week, I wanted to create an easy recipe that did not require cooking. Farm fresh cucumbers and tomatoes combined with a few other ingredients create this fresh versatile salsa. It is a beautiful array of colors and the flavors burst with each bite. Serve it as a snack or make it part of your main meal. Regardless of how you choose to showcase this dish, it is sure to please everyone.
2 Kirby cucumbers, diced
1 jalapeno, seeded and finely chopped (*adjust to your heat tolerance, any variety hot peppers can be used)
1 cup cherry tomatoes, quartered
Juice and zest from 1 lime
2 Tbsp fresh cilantro, finely chopped
1 medium sweet pepper, seeded and diced
½ sweet onion, finely diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp sea salt
¼ tsp black pepper
- Combine all ingredients in a large bowl.
- Mix to combine.
- Best if allowed to marinate for at least 30 minutes before serving.
- Serve with chips, as a topping for grilled fish, with tacos, etc.
