This past weekend we had a family party and I decided to bring an appetizer. The problem was all the appetizers I was thinking of all contained a majority of some kind of dairy and with the insane heat we have had, I didn’t think a dairy app would work very well.
I also didn’t want to make anything hot because it would be a 45min drive and I wouldn’t want to heat it up when I get there, plus who wants to eat hot food on a hot day!!! NOT ME!
So I turned to my favorite dependable website and man did it not let me down 🙂 PINTEREST OF COURSE!!!
Looking for an app I found this Cucumber Salsa, I was definitely impressed and it was a HUGE hit!! Everyone loved it!
Of course i don’t have a picture because I suck and don’t think about it until it is all gone! I will hopefully soon get with the program and have some nice pictures to go with my posts!
The recipe was found here curteousy of Pinterest, and here is the recipe.
Crisp Cucumber Salsa
Yield 2-1/2 cups
2 cups finely chopped seeded peeled cucumber
1/2 cup finely chopped seeded tomato
1/4 cup chopped red onion
2 Tbsp minced fresh parsley
1 jalepeno pepper, seeded and chopped
4-1/2 tsp minced fresh cilantro
1 garlic clove, minced or pressed
1/4 c reduced-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
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 gently to coat. Serve immediately with chips
This was such a great recipe, and it was kind of refreshing, and hey it can’t be that bad for you, I mean look at all those veggies! Give it a try, you won’t regret it, especially in this heat 🙂
