Cucumber Salsa

Zippy jalapeno, tart lime juice and garden-fresh cucumbers take center stage in this chunky salsa from Sandy Lee of Choctaw, Oklahoma. "I always have more cucumbers than I can use, so I created this recipe," she says. "It complements just about anything."

    This salsa is wonderful!! Great idea for all the extra garden vegetables! I made it and let it sit for a couple hours. Added some extra lime too. Yummy

    Delicious! We like a bit more spice so I added green chile from our garden and an extra jalapeno. What a great way to use up a summer garden harvest.
