Head to your local farmer's market and then try this recipe!
-2 medium cucumbers, peeled, seeded and diced. (I used 4 baby cucumbers, they may officially be called pickling cucumbers. Their seeds were very delicate, so I decided to leave them in.)
-2 medium tomatoes, seeded and chopped. (I used heirloom tomatoes. Worth it!)
-1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and chopped. (I omitted it. Jalapenos scare me. My very sensitive skin literally cannot handle them. I didn't have the appropriate gloves. But did add a couple of dashes of sriracha.)
-1/2 red onion, chopped. (Did you know that if you put an onion in a ice water bath for about 5 minutes, that it takes the "bite" out of the taste? Before discovering this tip, I never would have eaten a raw onion. Now, I can take it. In small doses.)
-1 clove garlic, minced.
-juice of one lime.
-handful of cilantro, chopped.
-handful of parsley, chopped. (I forgot to buy this, but added some dried parsley.)
-1/2 teaspoon dried dill weed. (I didn't have this either. Left it out.)
-Salt to taste.Mix all ingredients, then refrigerate for at least an hour to let flavors mingle. Will keep in the refrigerator for 4-5 days. If it lasts that long!
