Light, refreshing, and super crunchy, this salsa is the perfect Mexican-inspired dip or taco topping. Made with fresh veggies, jalapenos, onion, and seasoned with garlic and a splash of lime juice, we are in love with this easy salsa.
This recipe uses simple ingredients, but is so flavorful and lightly spicy. Chopped cucumber, bell pepper, tomatoes, and red onion seasoned with garlic, cilantro, lime juice, and cilantro make a light but delicious salsa. We love this cucumber salsa recipe with tortilla chips, tacos, and Mexican bowls.

How To Make It

- This salsa is best chilled, so pop it in the fridge prior to eating.
