Cucumber Fruit Salsa

Our garden always gives us way more cucumbers and tomatoes than we know what to do with. But we’ve learned how to handle the unexpected with a surprise of our own. This is our pretty, fresh way to use up the bounty. —Anna Davis, Springfield, Missouri

    Delicious! I used a large red pepper and left out the banana since I did not have any. Also substituted canned mandarin oranges for the navel. Had friends over for crabs and enjoyed this as an appetizer. They asked for the recipe :) It does not get any better than this!!!

    If your watching carbs leave out the banana. There are 24.1 net carbs in one banana. Alsothere are 12.2 net carbs in one medium peach and 9.3 net carbs in a small orange. I f you leave all the fruit out, this is still a good cucumber salsa for any one watching their weight.
