Lime Cucumber Tomato Salad



For a light, refreshing side dish, try this!
 
4 Large Tomatoes - Coarsely Chopped
2 Large Cucumbers - Partially peeled and Coarsely Chopped
1 Havasu Pepper
2 Green Onions, finely chopped
1 Lime
A few sprigs of Cilantro, chopped
Salt and Pepper to Taste
 
Zest and juice the lime.  Core and chop the tomatoes.  Today, I happen to be using 1 Brandywine, 1 Delicious and 2 Plum Yellows all fresh from my garden.  Really, any type of tomato will work!  ;-)  I prefer cucumbers with peel, so, of course, Handsome Husband likes cukes without the peel.  Opposites attract, right?  I peel ribbons down the cucumber, so they are about halfway peeled in an effort to keep peace in our marriage.  Those are given a quick chop along with the Havasu pepper and green onions.
 
All the ingredients are tossed in the bowl and stirred.  A little salt and pepper is added.


 
 
Mmmmm....  We had ours with empanadas.
 
 What's cookin' at your place?
