Cucumber Salsa

Cucumber Salsa. Cool, refreshing, delicious.

Cucumber Salsa. Cool, refreshing, delicious.

Here is another fabulous recipe that I have learned from my mother in law. She can whip up anything from an idea, and it tastes wonderful. There is a salad that she serves, often in place of a lettuce salad, or sometimes in addition to a lettuce salad. It’s simply made with cucumber, tomato and onion, and seasoned with lemon juice, olive oil  and salt. It is cool, refreshing and delicious. One day, she had the idea to add avocado to it and serve it alongside corn chips, as a dip. I was soooo good. At dinner, I piled a huge spoonful of it on my plate and that was mainly my dinner. (Don’t worry, I made room for the rest of her yummy food on my plate as well). In the future, I will try to post the cucumber, tomato and onion salad.  Today, I would like to share the ‘salsa’ version.
