Cucumber Salsa

"This is fresh and crunchy. Almost all the ingredients come straight from the garden. A great use for those surplus cucumbers and tomatoes-you can only make so many pickles, right?! Cook time is chill time."

  1. I too would like to know if you can pressure cook this salsa if so how long
  2. can you process this salsa in water bath


  1. are u able to can this and if so water bath or pressure can.
  2. Were you able to can? If so how was it?
  3. I was hoping to process this also. Pints at 10 mins. Did you try it?
  4. With a bumper crop of cucumbers, I tried this recipe and was delighted. I put all the ingredients into my food processor and then emptied the mixture into a colander and let it drain for an hour. Next time I will add more salt. This is good on chips, great on hot dogs, and on a sandwich.
  5. What a great change to salsa! I made this for football viewing and it was a hit! I did leave out the jalapeno because I'm a sissy......It was wonderful with Tostito Scoops and the "sonbees" used it on steak fajitas that night! It was even better the next day. This hive will absolutely make this again......good stuff!


I'm a stay at home mom with 3 adorable children-an 8 year old daredevil son, a 5 1/2 year old princess and a wild little 2 year old girl! I love to cook, and like having my little helpers in the kitchen! I usually love recipes that are completely from scratch (I still love them actually) but right now my focus is on having any kind of food ready by mealtime! It's a little crazy here lately. Every summer we have a huge organic garden, apple orchard and raspberry and blueberry patches, along with a woods full of wild foods waiting for me to learn what they are so I can collect them. I'm learning about wild mushrooms first, so if anyone has any tips, let me know. We also eat wild venison which my husband and I hunt ourselves. It's our favorite meat, since it's lean, organic and cheap! Some of my hobbies are: hiking, biking, rock climbing, gardening, playing in the water with my kids, or just swinging in the hammock with a good book. I go stir crazy if I spend too much time inside.
