Cucumber- Mandarin Orange Salsa
I noticed a few too many cans of mandarin oranges on the shelf in the pantry.Think I can remember what I bought them for? No.
Now what am I going to use them in? I knew I could come up with something.
This was really good!
1 cucumber - peeled , chopped, seeded and cut into 1/2 inch pieces
1 11 ounce can mandarin oranges-drained
1/4 cup red onion- finely chopped
1/2 of a red pepper- washed and cut up ( you could use more but I needed the other half for another recipe)
1/8 tsp red pepper flakes ( you can add more if you prefer)
Juice from 1/2 a lime
1/4 tsp. dried cilantro
salt- to taste
Combine the cucumber, mandarin oranges, red onion, red pepper, red pepper flakes, lime juice and cilantro in a medium size bowl. Sprinkle with salt to taste, then toss to combine.
