cucumber salad/ salsa

This recipe comes from Bean, here at Recipe Quest,
the amendments I have made are, no garlic & I use fresh coriander
It is not hot, but mellows pleasantly, to be served with fish or poached chicken, or alongside tortilla chips

2 cucumbers, peeled deseeded and diced
2 large tomatoes, deseeded and diced
2 fresno peppers, deseeded & finely chopped
2 jalapeños, finely chopped
a little onion, chopped
1/4 teasp ground cumin
a good handful freshly chopped coriander
1/2 juice of fresh lime squeezed
salt & black pepper

  • mix ingredients
  • & leave to infuse for a couple of hours or overnight

Hi Anne.
And tell your hubby it won't turn you into a curry head!
It's not at all spicy after it marinades, so long as you use the stumpy fresno chillies.

I love the look of that Gill. Refreshing and zingy.. It will make a wonderful addition to a bbq.

It certainly will, Luca.
