Cucumber Salsa for Lunch


 When we ate the salmon, in the previous recipe, we did not use much of the salsa.  Fortunately for me, I now had a great lunch.  It was not really enough to fill me up and my gut feeling is that I will be eating a few corn cakes to fill me up.  It was a good salad though and I am glad, I ate it, for lunch.

Cucumber Salsa for Salmon or as a salad (adapted from Taste of Home)

Ingredients:


1 cup finely chopped seeded peeled cucumber
1/2 cup finely chopped seeded tomato
1/4 cup chopped onion
1 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
1/4 cup red pepper, seeded and chopped
1/4 cup garlic dip
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon lime juice
1/8 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon seasoned salt (I used a citrus blend)
 

Method:

In a small bowl, combine the cucumber, tomato, onion, parsley and red pepper.


In another bowl, combine the sour cream, lemon juice, lime juice, cumin and seasoned salt. 

Pour over cucumber mixture and toss gently to coat. Serve immediately with chips.

  2. This salsa does sound good. I would have put it on a nice bed of spinach. I've got to try this, I like the cumin in there too.
