Tasty Tuesday

Summer Cucumber Salsa

3 medium-large cucumbers
3 small-medium tomatoes
1 green bell pepper
1/2 cup red onion
2 jalapeno peppers
2 Tbsp minced cilantro
2 Tbsp minced fresh dill
3 squeezes of lime juice (either from wedges or a lime-bottle)

(20 minute prep-time is for chopping up all the ingredients.)

Peel cucumber (if desired- you can leave the peel on if you prefer- I usually do, or at least leave some of it). Remove seeds from cucumber and discard, and chop remaining cucumber flesh into small pieces.
Remove seeds from tomatoes and discard. Chop remaining flesh into small pieces.
Remove seeds from bell pepper and discard. Chop bell pepper into small pieces.
Remove seeds from jalapeno peppers and chop into very small pieces (or mince).
Chop red onion into small pieces.
Mince cilantro and dill.

Combine all chopped veggies in a large bowl.
Add cilantro and dill and mix together well.
Add a few squeezes of lime juice and mix together again.
