Cucumber salsa

This is a refreshing topper for nachos, burgers or grilled fish. But it's so tasty, you'll be tempted to eat it on its own.


  • 1/2 cucumber

  • 1 roasted red bell pepper, or 1/2 red bell pepper, chopped

  • 41643 small red onion

  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, preferable multicoloured

  • 1 tbsp red-wine vinegar

  • 1 tbsp olive oil

  • 2 garlic cloves

  • 1 tsp dried oregano leaves

  • 1/2 tsp granulated sugar

  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro


  • Peel cucumber only if skin is thick. Slice in half lengthwise. Using a spoon, scrape out and discard seeds. Chop cucumber, pepper and onion and place in a large bowl. Slice tomatoes in half and add.

  • In a small bowl, whisk vinegar with oil, garlic, oregano, sugar and salt. Stir into cucumber mixture to coat. Sprinkle with cilantro. If making ahead, cover and refrigerate up to 1 day.
