Delicious, fresh and light. Perfect for a warm night when you need to bring or serve an appetizer. It was a lot of work to chop all the ingredients.

This was great! Enjoyed it so much as a dip for chips, had the leftover salsa all by itself for lunch the next day.

Our family enjoyed this. Although it is not as exciting as traditional salsa, we think it is a great way to use part of our cucumber excess. I did not have any tomato or cilantro and will make this again when I have all the ingredients! ??

I thought it was okay but probably will not make it again. It needs more pizazz!

Delicious. I also added chopped black olives. I think it would be great on top of grilled chicken or grilled fish... especially salmon.
