My friend Rebecca makes this MEAN cucumber salsa and I finally remembered to ask her for the recipe. She told me the ingredients, and a rough measurement of what she uses, but admitted she just adjusts everything to taste.
I typically do better following an exact recipe, but I was up to the challenge to try to duplicate her cucumber salsa!
Spicy Cucumber Salsa
3 whole cucumbers, chopped
2 jalapeños, chopped small
1/2 red onion, chopped
1/4 cup packed cilantro, roughly chopped
a squeeze of 1/2 of a lime
1 tbsp olive oil
salt to taste
Stir cucumber, jalapeños, red onion and cilantro together. Add olive oil and lime juice. Stir and let sit for 2 minutes. Taste, add salt, and adjust other ingredients as necessary.
I love a lot of cilantro so the more the merrier in my opinion. And I actually have some growing in a pot on my deck!
I’d highly recommend pairing this yummy salsa with a Margarita, as that is my absolute favorite drink in the summertime, but you do you.
