Thursdays Tasty Treat from the Garden

This morning I made my rounds of my little garden.  I have for the first time ever planted some lemon cucumbers and so far have picked 2 but I am sure there are many more to come.  Today I decided that I would try something new and created a Cucumber Salsa.

Cucumber Salsa Recipe
1 small lemon cucumber or half a regular one
dice 8 small tomatoes or 16 -20 cherry tomatoes
1/3 medium onion
1 fresh jalapeno pepper
a few sprigs of Fresh cilantro
a dash of lemon juice

dice the cucumber and tomatoes mix together and set aside.

Take jalapeno cut in half and remove seeds and veins, if you want a spicier salsa keep seeds and veins. Place jalapeno in a mini food processor along with the onion and cilantro then pulse until chopped fine.

 Mix jalapeno, cilantro and onion together with other ingredients.  Add lemon juice and salt to taste.  Use as a garnish for tacos or any other food.

I am serving this tonight for dinner as a garnish to some pinto beans and ham and homemade cornbread

Hope you enjoy.
