Spicy Cucumber Salsa

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.

INGREDIENTS:

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


DIRECTIONS:

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




Serve with grilled chicken or just eat with salt-free tortilla chips.


Bon Appetite!
