Lime Cucumber Salsa

This is the second salsa I've tried from Cookin' Up North and it's another winner! It is very light and fresh tasting, and contains no sugar. Great with chips and a friend served it as a side to grilled chicken and said that was very good too. As we're headed into cucumber season, don't hesitate to give it a try folks! 
 Lime Cucumber Salsa

Lime Cucumber Salsa
1 large cucumber, small dice-or maybe 3-4 kirbys
1 clove garlic, minced
3 green onions, sliced-I just used about 1/4 C sweet onion, small dice
1 jalapeno, cleaned and diced
2 Tblsp fresh cilantro, minced-parsley would be fine
1 tsp lime zest-I zested one lime
2 Tblsp lime juice-Used the juice from one large lime
2 Tblsp olive oil
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
-Mix everything and let mingle in fridge for at least 2 hours.
Have a happy day:@)

  2. Love cucumbers and we eat a lot of them this time of the year. This dip looks great. I can eat cilantro but Hubby can't stand the stuff, so I always have to opt of of using it in anything....

  9. This looks really good. I like cucumbers but don't have them often since the rest of my family isn't crazy about them. This salsa looks so fresh and flavorful that I bet they would enjoy it. Thanks for the recipe and for visiting my blog yesterday.
