Notes

  • It’s great with tortilla chips and is supposed to be good with grilled chicken, although we haven’t had it that way.
  • This makes for a very mild salsa. I usually increase the jalepenos for more of a bite.

I hope you enjoy it - it's one of my favorites for the summer. It's more of a "salsa" than a "salad" though. It's meant for dipping chips into. Which reminds me, I think I'll look for cucumbers at the farmers market today!
