Hi. It’s Lois in the kitchen at Recipe Idea Shop. I came up with this Cucumber Salsa recipe because I had a cucumber that needed to be used, and I thought it would complement the Vegan Louisiana Red Beans and Rice I was making for a party.
And I was right!
Cucumber Salsa is a light salsa that is terrific on Louisiana Red Beans and Rice, Lentil Soup or with tortilla chips. It can also be eaten alone as a salad. Not only is it tasty, but it is very easy and quick to make.
Luckily, in the U.S. we can get fresh tomatoes and fresh cucumbers all year long in our grocery stores. That means you will have access to the ingredients for this salsa anytime you want to make it. This Cucumber Salsa is a healthy option as an appetizer or salad. Make some and take it to your next party or gathering.
