Cucumber, Wasabi and Fresh Ginger Salsa

Total Time

From Tone down the spiciness if you wish by reducing the amount of ginger and wasabi. This is spicy-I've warned you. For a chunkier consistency, omit the yogurt.

Very tasty...I had to hide it from my fiance so I could enjoy it myself! Great flavor-not too hot, but full of wasabi flavor. I devoured it with tortilla chips. :)

To us, the wasabi was just not that hot! I used about 1 T and added a small jalapeno --seeds and all. We do like hot foods, but this was just a little spicy...not really hot. We love wasabi and are totally hooked on its flavor in this salsa. My DH took a bite and wrinkled his nose,---then proceeded to hog the rest of the bowl! He must have loved it! It was hard for the rest of us to "get a chip in edgewise!" Very good recipe but I would add more wasabi for our tastes, next time.

I really liked the flavours of this salsa, however, it was really runny. Not sure if that's the way it's supposed to be? I even drained the cucumbers and the yogurt before mixing, as this is something I normally do. It was a hit amongst my co-workers though. I didn't make it as spicy as I personally like, but everyone else thought it was perfect.
