Cucumber tomato salsa

imageI don’t know about you guys, but ever since my tomatoes have started producing I have had some serious salsa cravings. The kind of salsa that starts out with that sun ripened sweet tomato flavor ends with a mild jalapeño tingle. So here is the ultimate summer salsa recipe.

In a small bowl combine all the ingredients and chill for 1 hour. Serve with tortilla or pita chips.

  1. 2 cucumber, peeled, seeded and diced
  2. 4 medium heirloom tomatoes diced
  3. 2 tablespoons cilantro coarsely chopped
  4. 1/4 cup of chopped red onion
  5. 1 small jalapeño, stemmed, seeded, and minced
  6. 1 lime, juiced
  7. 2 cloves garlic minced
  8. salt and pepper to taste

And my secret ingredient, that brings just the right flavor enhancement…… add about 1/8 teaspoon of cajan seasoning.
