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.

    1. Debra, Thanks for stopping by! I made that last year and have made it many times since. I have another good one coming up soon! Hope you enjoy that one also.


  5. We love sour cream cucumber salads but this is quite different than any we've tried. I can't wait to give it a go!
