The Yummy Ingredients!
- Cucumber, diced
- Jalepeno, minced
- Cilantro, chopped
- Mint (if you want) chopped
- 1 small or half of a large onion (white or purple)
- Lime zest or Lime juice
- Salt & Pepper for taste
Same with the cucumbers. When you get to your jalepnos make sure to remove the seeds if you aren't going for that extra spice. I'm a wimp so out they go!
As for the cilantro i pretty much add as much as i possibly can. i just love it!
When it comes to the mint, i have never had it on hand but the original recipe calls for it so i put it in here. I have tried this recipe with both a white & red/purple onion and i most definitely would suggest the white onion it just gives the salsa a better over all flavor in my opinion. As much as i would love to just zest my little heart away on limes but most often i don't have fresh limes on hand so this lime juice really does the trick! sprinkle some salt & pepper to your taste & you are good to go! Top your favorite grilled or baked fish, burger or just eat it with chips!
no matter how you eat it its GOOD & GOOD for you!
