Ode to Cucumber


This recipe is especially for Teresa, who has an abundance of huge cucumbers and tasty tomatoes in her garden this year, a friend with a prolific garden is a good thing! Teresa has shared some of her abundance with me. I'll be drying her tomatoes today and trying to fit cucumbers in to every meal I serve. :)

Cucumber Salsa

2 peeled cucumbers, seeded, peeled and chopped
2 medium tomatoes, chopped
1/2 cup chopped green pepper
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and chopped
1 small onion, chopped
1 garlic clove, minced
2 T lime juice
1 t minced fresh parsley (note to self: grow in garden next year!)
2 t minced fresh cilantro (ditto!)
1/2 t dill weed
1/2 t salt

In bowl, combine ingredients. Cover and refrigerate 1 hour. Serve with chips. Makes four cups.

Sounds delicious...I will have to get some!!!
Another great thing to do with cucmbers is bread salad
Sliced cucumbers, wedges of tomatoes, and wedges of onion in a bowl...chunks of bread (like homemade crouton size) and oil and vinegar, salt & pepper ....sometimes we eat this without the bread, but I really LOVE it with the bread....like a good Ciabatta....mmmmm
