Crisp Cucumber Salsa

I’ve got a great healthy recipe for you today! This crisp cucumber salsa is a perfect recipe for summer. It’s light and fresh, but even more importantly, it’s delicious! I made this as a snack for Mike and I one afternoon, and we finished the whole recipe in one day. I was proud of our healthy snack and told Mike we had probably eaten a full serving of vegetables. Of course he had to go and burst my bubble by reminding me how many tortilla chips we had eaten. :) Just to warn you – this salsa is somewhat addicting. It’s such a nice alternative to traditional tomato salsa – perfect for warm weather because it tastes so nice and fresh. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did!

    This looks REALLY good – wish I’d seen this BEFORE I went to Meijer LOL. But I’ll definitely be giving this one a try (may even run back to the store TODAY to pick up the handful of things I don’t have in the house). Thanks. :) And was nice to chat with ya last week.
