Cucumber Salsa

Tis the season for cucumbers, so here's a great recipe to use up your excess cukes. It's crisp and refreshing with lots of veggies. The original recipe called for a jalapeno, but since my family doesn't like too much heat, I replaced it with a green bell pepper. You can do whichever you prefer.

Here's what you'll need:

2 cucumbers, peeled, seeded and diced
2 Roma tomatoes, seeded and diced
1/2 green bell pepper, diced
1/2 onion, diced - red onion is a great choice!
chopped cilantro, to taste - I use about 2 TBSP
1 teas minced garlic
1/4 cup sour cream
2 teas lemon juice
2 teas lime juice
1/4 teas cumin
1/4 teas seasoned salt

In a bowl, combine the veggies, cilantro, and garlic. In a separate bowl, mix the sour cream with the lemon juice, lime juice and seasonings. Pour the sour cream mixture over the cucumber mixture and stir gently to coat. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
