Preparing the Salsa Ingredients
Peel, de-seed, and dice into small chunks, 2 medium cucumbers. Add into a medium bowl.
De-seed and dice 3 Roma tomatoes and add to the bowl.
Tip: I have found that using a metal spoon is an easy way to scoop the seeds out of the middle of the cucumbers and tomatoes.
Take ½ large red onion, dice, and add to the bowl.
De-seed, and dice 1 large red bell pepper. Add to the bowl.
Chop up ¼ cup cilantro and add to the bowl. If you like more cilantro in your salsa you can always add more but if you are more sensitive to cilantro just add the ¼ cup or slowly add in more until you enjoy the taste.
Add 1 tablespoon minced garlic to the bowl. You can use fresh garlic cloves or already pre-minced garlic out of the jar.
Mix the vegetables together with a spoon.
Mixing the Cucumber Salsa
Once you have prepped the vegetables and have added them to the bowl it is time to season the salsa. You will need to mix in 3 tablespoons of lime juice 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 2 tablespoons of Chugwater Chili Seasoning.
If you want a spicier salsa, you can use the Chugwater Chili Hot Chili Seasoning to season the salsa. You can also add in diced jalapenos if you wish.
Mix until the chili seasoning is well blended with the salsa ingredients. You can serve this treat right away or place it in the refrigerator overnight.
