Fresh Cucumber Salsa

Fresh Cucumber Salsa - Bitz & Giggles

Does summer weather have you craving delicious, fresh foods? It definitely has that effect on me! One of the things I look forward to in the summer is planting our little deck garden, having access to fresh herbs and attending all of the wonderful farmer’s markets around the area here. I guess it makes sense why I crave fresh foods. I am surrounded by them! This Fresh Cucumber Salsa is hands-down one of the freshest recipes I’ve made so far this year. I could eat it by the spoonful.

 What’s better than throwing a ton of fresh herbs and veggies in a bowl? Nothing. That’s what.

The dill and jalapeno in this salsa gives it just the right zip and kick. Because I’m a bit of a chicken when it comes to “kick” I usually only use one jalapeno pepper and also remove the seeds. If you are the kind who likes to sweat while you enjoy your food, go wild with those peppers.

One of the best parts about this salsa is that I didn’t feel guilty eating it at all. The most unhealthy part of it was the chips I was using to scoop it up. Aww, heck. It’s summer people. Enjoy it!

  6. Delicious! I just made this. I only used half the lime juice because my tomatoes were pretty juicy already, but it’s already halfway gone! Definitely going to make more of this.
