One of my favorite things about summer is the ability to enjoy fresh veggies all season long. I haven’t purchased a single canned good from the grocery store in months now and how freeing it all is to me!
Cucumbers are rolling in and I was looking for something different and healthy to enjoy them with, so I playing in the kitchen I came up with an absolutely delicious cucumber salsa.
Fresh, full of flavor, unique and healthy, the cucumber salsa makes a perfect snack for a summer afternoon.
Juice and zest of 2 limes
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 English cucumbers, diced (and peeled if you prefer)
1/2 Sweet onion, diced fine (about 1/2 cup)
2 stalks celery, diced (about 1 cup)
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
2-3 jalapeno, seeds removed and minced
Whisk together the lime zest and juice, pepper, and olive oil in a large mixing bowl.
Add the remaining ingredients, and toss to combine. Serve chilled.
6 servings, 1 cup each

It looks great and, for my house, it looks great without the peppers. : >
This sounds wonderful and so refreshing on a hot summer day. Looks yummy!
Yum! Check out my post on greek chicken sandwiches with cucumber salad…YUM-O. We serve it on flat bread but you could just eat plain or in a lettuce wrap
