Cucumber Salsa

I've been trying to find a good homemade salsa recipe. This one from Pinterest is definitely a good favorite! I never would've thought to put cucumber as the main ingredient in a salsa, but it was wonderfully refreshing. It was cool, and light, and absolutely delicious! The cumin and jalapeno give it good heat and flavor. The only thing I wasn't super thrilled about is if you don't use it right away it will start to get a little watery. I'll be making it for more parties this summer!

Cucumber Salsa-adapted from Keeping It Together
Total Time: 10 Minutes
Makes 2 1/2 cups

  • 2 cups finely chopped, seeded and peeled cucumber
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped, seeded tomato
  • 1/4 cup red onion, chopped
  • 1 jalapeno, seeded and chopped
  • 2 teaspoon dried cilantro
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/4 cup fat free sour cream
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon lime juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon seasoned salt

In a small bowl, combine the first seven ingredients. In another small bowl, combine the remaining ingredients; pour over cucumber mixture and toss gently to coat. Serve immediately with chips.
