Tomato Cucumber Salsa

A big bite of this cucumber salsa is like a party in your mouth! It’s spicy, it’s fresh, it’s light, and it’s crisp and crunchy. It’s everything you want in a salsa. Salsa variations are so fun to try, and I really liked this cucumber version.

It still has some diced tomatoes in it which keeps the flavors of original salsa in it too. The jalapeños give it a kick of heat, and the lime juice and cilantro enhance the flavor of all the other ingredients.

Grab a bag of your favorite tortilla chips and eat them with this fresh tomato cucumber salsa. It’s great on it’s own but you can also serve it on top of fish, chicken, or pork dishes. Cucumber salsa is also delicious on top of Mexican dishes like tacos, burritos, or even in Mexican salads!

How to Make Cucumber Salsa

Chop up the cucumbers, onions, jalapeños, bell pepper, and tomatoes (see beautiful picture below!). I love the pretty colors in this salsa. Add those ingredients to a bowl and stir together to combine.

Then add in the garlic, lime juice, cilantro, dill, and garlic salt. Mix everything together until well combined.

Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and keep in the fridge for about one hour. It’s best served chilled. Serve with tortilla chips or any of the dishes mentioned above. I hope you love this fresh cucumber salsa as much as I do!

How to store cucumber salsa?

I usually store my cucumber salsa in an airtight container in the fridge. It can last for about 4 days but it’s so yummy you will probably eat it all by then!

Can cucumber salsa be canned?

While some salsas are able to be canned, this particular recipe is definitely one you want to eat fresh!

What to serve with Cucumber Salsa?

We love to have this cucumber salsa with tortilla chips, but it’s also great with tacos, burritos and more. It’s cool and refreshing and similar to a pico de gallo, so whatever you’d serve with that also works for this salsa.
