You’re going to LOVE this Healthy & Easy Summer Recipe for Cucumber Pico de Gallo sent from Cara Lanz with Midwestern HomeLife!  It’s a simple fresh salsa with a twist made with garden-fresh vegetables that’s ridiculously refreshing and delicious on grilled chicken or fish — or, of course, scooped up with chips. I think it just screams summer and, of course, is very healthy and easy. The best part? You can make in advance and store leftovers in the refrigerator in an airtight container for 4-5 days.


– 1 English cucumber
– 4 Roma tomatoes
–  ¼ cup red onion
–  1 jalapeno

– In a large bowl, combine the cucumber, tomatoes, red onion, jalapeno, garlic, and green onions. Add the lime zest, lime juice, and salt. Gently toss everything together.
