Mmmmmm cucumber salsa! We made this with fresh organic produce, and served it over Scarlet Snapper filets with avocado on the side... it was delicious! So refreshing for a summer day. This makes quite a LOT of salsa, so you can half it if you like. But it's also good with chips...
1/2 medium sized onion, diced
2 large cucumbers, peeled, seeded, and chopped
3 medium sized tomatoes, chopped
1/2 medium sized bell pepper, chopped
1 - 2 small jalapeno pepper(s), chopped (and seeded, if desired)
2 limes, juiced
2 Tablespoons cilantro, chopped
1 teaspoon fresh or dried dill
salt & pepper
Place chopped tomatoes and cucumbers in a strainer while chopping the other veggies to drain excess juice. Mix all ingredients and marinate in the refrigerator for an hour or so.
I poured the excess tomato/cucumber juice over my fish fillets, sprinkled some s&p and baked it at 350 degrees until it was fork flakey (new word!). It was amazing.
