Delicious Homemade Cucumber Salsa
If you are looking for something to make with all those cucumbers and tomatoes from your garden, make this amazing Fresh Cucumber Salsa. Our daycare provider sent home an entire bag of fresh cucumbers and we had no idea what we were going to do with that many! Our garden is really producing a ton of ripe red tomatoes, so I thought it’s the perfect time of year for some Fresh Cucumber Salsa.
Even kids like this Fresh Cucumber Salsa! At least mine do anyway. As I was taking photos, Haydyn kept taking chips and reaching into the dip! It was really funny and I just happened to capture her little hand reaching in for some of that delicious Cucumber Salsa.
The recipe I use doesn’t call for fresh tomatoes, but we love them so much with it that we used them in place of a 2nd can of Rotel tomatoes. Our household isn’t a fan of cilantro, so I didn’t add it either. You can make little adjustments to perfect the recipe to your tastes. I think some fresh onions would go nicely in this recipe as well.
This Fresh Cucumber Salsa has just enough of a little kick to it, but you could always make it spicier if you prefer. Just use Hot Rotel Tomatoes instead of Original. My husband and I tend to disagree on how spicy some of our foods should be! He wants it to burn your nose hairs and I am much more conservative. Play with the flavors and see what works best for you.
- 3 cucumbers diced and without skins
- 1 can Rotel Original (if you don't want to add fresh tomatoes use 2 cans of rotel.)
- 1 1/2 cups of fresh tomatoes
- 2 packets of dry ranch dressing
- 3 tbsp of apple cider vinegar
- Mix together cucumbers, rotel, tomatoes, dry ranch dressing and apple cider vinegar. Serve immediately or refrigerate for a couple of hours. Serve with tortilla chips.
I hope you love Fresh Cucumber Salsa as much as everyone in our house does. It would be a wonderful addition to fall parties, football food or those last barbecue’s of the season.
