Welcome to Cucumberland! There will be three cucumbers for each of us in this week’s half share, and full share members will get six. Such a cool, crisp, wet vegetable. It’s perfect for summertime.
Because it is such a wet vegetable, the cucumber lends itself to cold dishes, as cooking it will draw out all the moisture, and our poor cukes will just disappear!
So, this week’s recipe is a cool no-cook cucumber salsa.
2 TBS lime juice
1 tsp minced parsley
2 tsp minced cilantro
1/2 tsp dried dill weed
1/2 tsp salt
1 pkg tortilla chips
1. In a medium bowl, stir together the cucumbers, tomatoes, green pepper, jalapeno pepper, onion, garlic, lime juice, parsley, cilantro, dill, and salt.
2. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour. Serve with tortilla chips.
That’s all there is to it – no sweat!
HELPFUL HINT: If you take the ribs and the seeds out of the jalapeno, it will be milder. You could also substitute a milder chili pepper, such as Anaheim.
I hope this dish will help you beat the heat. Enjoy!
Have a delicious week.
