With cucumbers being so abundant right now we thought it would be fun to come up with a fun way to feature these crunchy little melons (did you know cucumbers are technically melons) that makes them the star of the show. What better way than a fresh, simple salsa to let the flavors of the cumbers shine! You can eat this salsa with chips, on tacos, have it as a side dish, add it to a salad, or of course bring it to a potluck!
