I love this time of year. I love walking out to my garden and picking ingredients for a recipe. I'm proud to say that the cucumbers, tomatoes, green pepper and jalapeno pepper for this recipe came from our garden. Yay!
Salsa is the perfect summer food. It's so light and fresh. I could eat it every.single.day. If you like salsa, you'll love this recipe. It is very crisp (thanks cucumbers).
Make 4 cups
2 medium cucumbers - peeled, seeded, and chopped
3 medium tomatoes, seeded and chopped
1/2 cup chopped green bell pepper
1 jalapeno pepper, minced
1 small red onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
2 tablespoons lime juice
1 teaspoon minced fresh parsley
2 tablespoons minced fresh cilantro
1/2 teaspoon salt
In a medium bowl, stir together the cucumbers, tomatoes, green pepper, jalapeno pepper, onion, garlic, lime juice, parsley, cilantro and salt. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.
* If you like heat, add more jalapeno
* Not a fan of onions? Try a sweet onion.
* Take the bite out of the onion by soaking it in water for 10 minutes after you've chopped it.
