A great way to use all those cucumbers you get from your plants! A little zing from the jalapeno and a burst of lime add a fresh taste to cucumbers in this refreshing fresh salsa.

yep- very refreshing and crunchy and tasty! don't skimp on the lime juice... add lots... needs a bit more salt as well... 1 jalapeno won't do a thing with the spice factor- it needs 3 to get any kick at all. and don't get impatient with the refrigerator time... it needs to flavor up for a while.:) Read More

I made this without the cilantro (husband won't touch cilantro) and without the parsley (just didn't have it) but with the dill. It was good and refreshing. Some people liked it a lot others didn't care. I think if you're a person who likes veggies more than the average person you'll like this. I liked it but my husband wouldn't touch it even though he loves cucumber (but few other veggies). Also I was afraid the raw onion would be overwhelming and I don't like raw onion at all but it really was very mild - I would definitely add the same amount next time. Read More

I've made this twice in the past week and it's been very positively received each time. I just learning to like cukes and I don't really care for cilantro so it's not my personal fav but everyone else seems to love it! I love that it's fairly easy to make and is a cool light alternative to many mayo coated calorie dense BBQ dishes! I used 1 cuke (it was rather large) and 1/2 jalap (my jalaps were HUGE....5".....both times...I'd prefer a little more heat but I always error on the safe side when taking for others). I also couldn't find fresh cilantro so I had to use dried (used 2 heaping tsps to adjust). I also doubled the lime juice....everyone loves guessing what's in this salsa! TY for a great easy recipe. Oh yeah I used red onion for both the bite and color and the second time I also added half a diced red bell pepper. Read More

WONDERFUL! I only used one cucumber and extra tomatoes. The recipe as written is very mild. Add more jalepenos to make it spicier. This is the best salsa recipe I have tried! Read More

This was fantastic! I didn't use parsley because I didn't have any so I used about twice as much cilantro I used an extra cucumber also. I added a little cracked black pepper and I didn't have a lime so I used lemon but I read the recipe wrong so instead of using half a teaspoon I accidentally used a whole half of the lemons juice but it truly was one of the best salsas I have ever had! In fact I ate almost all of it the first night so I had to go back to the store to get more cucumbers so that I could make another batch! Try this once and you will have it again and again! Read More

We made this and took to a dinner party -- it was a huge hit. We love cucumbers and this receipe really added to the simple cucumber salad we ate as we grew up. We did not use it as a dip rather it was spread over baked salmon and was delicious. Read More

Great recipe. I used 4 jalapenos because everyone in the office loves spicy food and I doubled the cilantro and omitted the parsley. I also used 4 tomatoes to give it more red coloring. I will certainly make this again. Read More

Fantastic! This recipe is beyond five stars in my book. Don't skip the dill! It gives this salsa such a great variety of flavors. The only change I made was to omit the onion. I served it with Hint of Lime Tostitos and it was a match made in heaven. I will make this again and again thank you! Read More

This was DEVOURED at a cookout I went to this past weekend. I got a lot of great compliments on this. I used the seedless cucumbers and added 4 chopped fresh jalapenos. It is cool and crisp and just plain good. Look forward to making this again. Thank you. Read More
