Cool Cucumber Salsa

How to make the best cucumber salsa recipe - This simple and easy dip uses crisp, fresh veggies and spicy peppers for the ultimate salsa!

I have a little mirror attached to the rearview mirror in my car. It telescopes and twists and turns so that I can keep an eye on my babe while I'm driving. I picked up our CSA share today, and I set the bag on the back seat as I do every week. This week, when I got in the front seat, I saw something that really made me laugh.

Cucumber! Nom nom nom! Cucumber!

I didn't scold her or take it away because – seriously? The kid grabbed a fresh cucumber out of the bag and starting eating it! It was a parent's dream.

She crunched that cucumber the whole way home.

In honor of Gracie's sudden affection for cucumbers, I am reposting my cucumber salsa recipe. It's dee-licious.

  4. Our garden is providing us with lots of cucumbers – and we love ’em. I can’t wait to try your salsa recipe. I’m shopping around for an appliance to use for making salsa – any recommendations?

  6. Janet – An appliance? Do you mean a food processor or something? I use a very fancy appliance called a sharp knife, so I probably am not the right person to ask. 🙂

  19. Oh, how fun! I’ve been gone for a week, got home late last night, and am heading out to my garden in minutes. I suspect I’ll see some cucumbers out there, ripe and ready to be turned into salsa!

  22. I’m a little behind on reading blogs *hangs head in shame*

    Ladybug did something similar the last time we went to the farmer’s market. Sadly, we have no local CSA, but 2 great markets, so I’ll live. I took the nieces to the market as a little field trip during Cousin Day Camp.

    Anyway, I let the older girls pick out some fruits and veggies to buy, showed them which ones needed to be weighed, etc. Ladybug kept saying “green bean! green bean!” So I handed her a raw green bean and she happily munched away while I paid for our goodies, walked backed to the car, and drove home! Loved that!
