Cucumber Salsa

As we approach the season of easy, cold, fresh foods and farmers markets, I give you cucumber salsa. It's perfect to munch on for the week, to use atop grilled or baked chicken, or to bathe in. Just kidding. Or, you know, to enjoy on a fine Cinco de Mayo like today.

Ingredients
2 cups english cucumber, peeled and chopped fine
1/3 cup red onion, chopped fine
1 cup tomato, seeded and diced
1 jalapeno chopped fine, seeds removed
3 TBS chopped fresh cilantro
1 TBS minced garlic
1/4 cup plain greek yogurt
1/2 TBS cumin
1/2 TBS white pepper
11/2 TBS kosher salt
Juice of one lime
Juice of half a lemon
Directions
Mix well. Refrigerate for a few hours before serving. Makes enough for a four cup Pyrex. Double/triple if necessary for a crowd. 

After it sits, it will be a little watery, so I typically drain before serving.

  1. That sounds great, Steph. It reminds me of a salad that I make, but with added feta. Salads like this make it really feel like spring.Thank you for sharing! Have a good Tuesday.

  7. I have all the ingredients to make this RIGHT NOW except a red onion. Why is it so hard to find one red onion? I don't need 38362 of them like the stores prefer to sell.

  8. This looks so delicious and refreshing. There is something about cucumber that is refreshing in general, isn't there? I can't wait to start diving in to all the cold stuff that I can make ahead of time.

    1. The philosopher John Locke came up with the notion of the tabula rasa! LOST was inspired by it too. LOL!

  22. I would have never thought to use Greek yogurt as a salsa ingredient, but girrrrrrl, this sounds AH-mazing!! Once again, thanks for sharing your talents in the kitchen! :)

  23. This looks so good! I love cucumber salads when it's warm out. Last week I made a quinoa mediterranean salad that was really good I must say. It was quinoa (cooled after cooking), tomatoes, kalamata olives, feta and balsamic vinegar. I think there was lemon too. Salads are just the best when it's sweltering in the summer.
