Cucumber Salsa

IMG_9530Say what??? I’m posting a recipe?? Well, I’ll have some changes coming soon, but in the mean time… I was at a dinner party last week during one of the hottest days of the year. One of the appetizers was similar to this and it was amazing! I just knew I had to try to recreate it, so here you are-my take on cucumber salsa, a refreshing, healthy summer snack…


Cucumber Salsa


2 cups finely chopped seeded, peeled cucumbers (about 1 large english cucumber)
1/2 cup finely chopped seeded tomato
1/4 cup finely diced red onion
chopped jalapeño (amount to your liking-I used about 2 tablespoons very finely chopped)
2 tablespoons finely minced fresh cilantro
1 garlic clove-minced
1/4 cup fat free sour cream (or plain yogurt)
1 teaspoon lemon juice-fresh
1 1/2 teaspoons lime juice-fresh
pinch of cumin
pinch of salt and pepper
Tortilla chips or baguettes for eating it on


In a small bowl, mix together the first six ingredients. In another small bowl, combine the rest of the ingredients. Pour, sparingly over the cucumber mixture. As the salsa sits, the cucumbers will give off liquid, so you can add more of the dressing if you need to, but add it slowly at first so it doesn't get too runny.

Serve with tortillas or toasted baguettes
