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

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.

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.
