Cucumber Salsa

It always gets to this time of year when the cucumbers are in full production and I am producing more than I can eat in the usual manner with lettuce and tomato! (classic English boring salad). One of my favourite ways to vary the use is to make a simple and quick Cucumber Salsa to use as a side dish.

If you are looking for a quick, fresh and delicious salsa, then this is just for you.

Prep Time: – 5 minutes

Servings: – 2


  • 1 Small cucumber cut in half lengthwise and seeded
  • 1 large tomato quartered and seeded
  • 1 Chilli, seeds removed (optional – replace with Bell Pepper)
  • 2 cloves garlic minced or crushed
  • 2 Shallots finely diced
  • 2 tablespoons corriander leaves
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  • Place all ingredients into a food processor, and pulse until evenly chopped.
  • If you do not own a food processor or you prefer, you can chop by hand
  • Place in a bowl and serve
  • Add additional lime juice or salt to taste.
