    Really liked this recipe...just added freshly ground pepper and ate like a salad...then the following day added crumbled feta cheese which I thought worked well  -  27 Apr 2013


    yep- very refreshing and crunchy and tasty! don't skimp on the lime juice... add lots... needs a bit more salt, as well... 1 jalapeno won't do a thing with the spice factor- it needs 3 to get any kick at all. and don't get impatient with the refrigerator time... it needs to flavor up for a while.  -  03 Sep 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I've made this twice in the past week and it's been very positively received each time. I just *learning* to like cukes and I don't really care for cilantro, so it's not my personal fav, but everyone else seems to love it! I love that it's fairly easy to make and is a cool light alternative to many mayo coated calorie dense BBQ dishes! I used 1 cuke (it was rather large) and 1/2 jalap (my jalaps were HUGE....5".....both times...I'd prefer a little more heat, but I always error on the safe side when taking for others). I also couldn't find fresh cilantro, so I had to use dried (used 2 heaping tsps to adjust). I also doubled the lime juice....everyone loves guessing what's in this salsa! TY for a great easy recipe. Oh yeah, I used red onion for both the bite and color and the second time I also added half a diced red bell pepper.  -  11 Jun 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
