Barbecue Secrets

Quick Cucumber Salsa

Jul 25, 2008

So, here goes. I'm in the final stages of putting together my new book, Planking Secrets DELUXE! which is due out next spring. In the coming week or two I'm going to post as many new recipes I can on this blog. Here's the first one. Watch for more.

Quick Cucumber Salsa

Makes about two cups.

Often, the simplest combinations are the best. This one tastes like summer. Try it on grilled fish, spoon it over a cold soup or split it between two bowls as a starter for a summer lunch.

1 cucumber
Juice of 1 lime
1 tsp.|5 mL chopped fresh dill
1 tsp.|5 mL sugar
Kosher salt

Peel the cucumber, cut it lengthwise into quarters, and remove the seeds. Chop into a ¼ inch|6 mm dice. Add the lime juice, dill, sugar and a pinch of salt. Use immediately.
