I have made a similar version of this for years, except, I seed the cucumbers, add 1-2 more seeded jalapenos, add 1 can black beans drained and rinsed, and 1 can corn drained, and increase the cilantro to 1 small handful. Give it a try, you may like this version better.

Great recipe! I seed the cucumbers and tomatoes, and I add half the tomatoes called for in the recipe, as I enjoy the focus on the cucumbers. So delicious I eat it with a spoon! I also add a little more heat...about 3 jalapenos intead of one. Very yummy and fresh!
