Default Cucumber Salsa

Cucumber Salsa

2 medium cucumbers, peeled, seeded and chopped
2 medium tomatoes, chopped
1/2 cup chopped green pepper
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and chopped
1 small onion, chopped
1 garlic clove, minced
2 Tbs lime juice
1 tsp minced fresh parsley
2 tsp minced fresh cilantro
1/2 tsp dill weed
1/2 tsp salt

In a bowl combine the ingredients. Cover and refrigerate for
1 hour.

Of course I adapted the recipe I left the pieces a little bigger to serve as a salad. I used one red and one yellow tomato for visual appeal and used more parsley & cilantro. Oh, and the cucumbers were pickling cucumbers fresh from the farm stand so I didn't peel or seed them. It made a perfect side dish for Mexican Stuffed Peppers (no recipe, sorry)
