Crisp Cucumber Salsa


I found this on Keeping It Together. Adapted it and thought it was very good. Think I'll try Greek yogurt next time in place of the sour cream. 

2 cups chopped seeded peeled cucumber ( I didn't peel or seed)
1/2 cup chopped seeded tomato ( didn't seed)
1/4 cup chopped red onion ( I added 3/4 cup)
2 Tbsp. minced fresh parsley ( didn't add)
 1 Jalapeno pepper, seeded and chopped (added seeds)
 4 1/2 tsp. minced fresh cilantro
 1 clove garlic, minced ( I added 3 tsp. chili garlic sauce for additional heat)
 1/4 Cup low fat sour cream

1 1/2 tsp. lemon juice
1 1/2 tsp. lime juice
1/4 tsp. ground cumin
1/4 tsp. seasoned salt( didn't add)

In a small bowl, combine the first seven ingredients. In another bowl, combine the sour cream, lemon juice, lime juice, cumin and seasoned salt. Pour over cucumber mixture and toss.
