Introduction

A new twist on salsa, for using cucumbers from the garden! A new twist on salsa, for using cucumbers from the garden!
Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    3 medium-large cucumbers
    3 small-medium tomatoes
    1 green bell pepper
    1/2 cup red onion
    2 jalapeno peppers
    2 Tbsp minced cilantro
    2 Tbsp minced fresh dill
    3 squeezes of lime juice (either from wedges or a lime-bottle)

Directions

(20 minute prep-time is for chopping up all the ingredients.)

Peel cucumber (if desired- you can leave the peel on if you prefer- I usually do, or at least leave some of it). Remove seeds from cucumber and discard, and chop remaining cucumber flesh into small pieces.
Remove seeds from tomatoes and discard. Chop remaining flesh into small pieces.
Remove seeds from bell pepper and discard. Chop bell pepper into small pieces.
Remove seeds from jalapeno peppers and chop into very small pieces (or mince).
Chop red onion into small pieces.
Mince cilantro and dill.

Combine all chopped veggies in a large bowl.
Add cilantro and dill and mix together well.
Add a few squeezes of lime juice and mix together again.

Serve with your choice of tortilla chips (not included in nutritional information). I use baked chips to make the recipe a little more healthy. I've found this salsa tastes great on baked "Scoops" chips, or corn tortilla chips with the "hint of lime" flavor. It especially worked well when I served it with Mango-Peach baked fruit chips!

    This was so good! I used english cuke, no hot peppers, and added some salt/pepper. I used dried parsley and dill. It made alot, but I will use it to top salads. The dill was a pleasant surprising taste - wouldn't have thought of it. I will definetely make this over and over!!! - 5/26/09

    This is good stirred into sour cream for a topping on grilled salmon...or add some garlic, chili powder, and cumin for more of a Tex-Mex flavor. I also liked it just as written, but with a little garlic added. - 6/30/08

    I was surprised it didn't get too runny after setting a few days. It made so much for 1 person, but its been as good on day 5 as it was to begin with. Maybe better.
    Very nutritional.

    I made the recipe however I omitted the Jalapeno peppers. I also made my own pita chips so that I could control the sodium. - 6/30/08
