Incredible! 5.0/5
(2 ratings)

Delicious sauce for anything from chicken to salmon to rice or just as a dip for brad or veggies-
It disappears faster than you can serve it.
Use 1 large seedless cucumber with the peel if you can or 1 1/2 regular cucumbers peeled if you don't have seedless. Salt and pepper are always to taste, and the olive oil is optional but gives the sauce a bit of richness that is pretty good.
This sauce doesn't usually call for onion, but, I like it.

If you are cooking for someone on a low sodium diet, use this recipe instead of taco seasoning. This recipe is the equivelant to one package of taco seasoning (or 3 tablespoons.) Adjust the strength of any ingredient to your taste.

Ever get frustrated with canned tomato or spaghetti sauces? This is a great alternative and if tomatoes are in season in your garden use fresh for amazing taste!
