Introduction

Depending on how small you chop the veggies, this light summer side can be a salad or salsa. Pair the salad with grilled chicken or shrimp. As a dip, opt for endive, jicama slices, or lime tortilla chips. Depending on how small you chop the veggies, this light summer side can be a salad or salsa.

Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    Juice and zest of 2 limes
    1/4 teaspoon cracked black pepper
    1 tablespoon olive oil
    2 English cucumbers, diced (and peeled if you prefer)
    1/2 red onion, diced fine (about 1/2 cup)
    2 stalks celery, diced (about 1 cup)
    1/4 cup chopped cilantro
    1 jalapeno, seeds removed and minced

Tips

Are you serving the dish now or later? If you're making it ahead of time, toss the diced cucumber with 2 teaspoons salt in a colander. Place in kitchen sink for 20 minutes to allow the salt to pull out excess moisture from the cucumber. Rinse well, then drain.


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

    I don't understand why people comment before trying it. Oh well. I have and it was good. It just seemed to me to be missing something to give it that "Wow" factor. But I liked the fact it's so healthy and a different type of side salad. - 7/9/13

    I, also, left out the cilantro and jalapeno (personal preference). Good refreshing salad for serving in HOT weather! - 7/9/13

    I goofed a bit--forgot to whisk the oil and lime juice together--and it was still very good. I will try it again--and will cut the cucumbers up smaller. I did leave out the jalapeno--didn't have any in the house. Will include next time! - 7/10/13
