Summer Cucumber Salsa
Very Good 4.3/5
(133 ratings)

Cookbook creator says: This is good although be careful with the cilantro. To much and it will be bitter. Lime juice didn't do it for me so had to drain it off and add Jalepeno juice. This is a mild salsa.

Cookbook creator says: For a little more bite replace the onions & bell peppers with 2-4 tbs Hot Pico De Galo. Saute then follow recipe. This was delicious and added considerable more flavor. My husband hates turkey and he said it was delicious, of course I didn't tell him it was made with turkey;-)
