A nice, cool spring and summer spread. Great for teas and lazy afternoons.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Peel, core, and seed the cucumber, then grate.
  2. Sprinkle cucumber with salt in a colander and toss (this allows the cucumber to"sweat" out excess water); let stand for 30 minutes, stirring once or twice, then remove and gently squeeze liquid from cucumber.
  3. Mix grated cucumber with remaining ingredients and chill for a least an hour before serving.
  4. Serve with crackers or bread.

This was delicious! I didn't add the tomatoes as my husband doesn't like them and I forgot to add the lime juice - but it was great - very light tasting. Thought it would be good with shrimp or crab added to it.
