Things to Make - Cucumber Salsa
I thought for this summer's "Things to Make" I'd have a ton of wonderful kids' art projects and activities. But, somewhat sadly, we're just not rolling craftily this summer. Lately the days seem fuller than ever (how is this possible? seriously how?) between camps, the pool, and constantly checking on whether the stinky flower has bloomed (which it FINALLY has), we're exhausted.
So I'm posting a recipe this week. Our CSA (through Great Country Farms) keeps giving us LOTS and LOTS of cucumbers and one can only eat so much tzatziki or raita. One can, however, eat bowl after bowl of cucumber salsa (or so I've learned). We've been snacking on the salsa with chips, but I think it would also taste wonderful with fish.
Happy summer everyone!!
2 cups finely diced peeled cucumber
1/2 cup finely diced red onion
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1/4 cup chopped fresh mint
1 jalapeño (with seeds), finely diced
3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
Mix first five ingredients in a medium bowl. Stir in lime juice and oil. Season to taste with kosher salt, freshly ground black pepper, and more lime juice, if desired.
