My daughter made this cucumber salsa this past week. This is more like a crisp cucumber salad. It is so light, refreshing, and scrumptious. We ate half the bowl ourselves. So, I just have to share this recipe with you.

Ratio of Fresh Herbs to Dry Herbs
This recipe calls for fresh herbs; however, if you do not have any on hand, do not be discouraged. You can still make this delicious recipe.
According to Martha Stewart, there is a general rule when it comes to the ratio of fresh to dry. Due to the dry herbs being more potent and concentrated than their fresh counterparts; you will need less of the dried version. She recommends using 3 times the amount of fresh herbs to dry.
Cucumber Appetizer – Fresh Taste
English Cucumbers for Recipes
English Cucumbers; I just happen to like them better because they have a thinner skin, smaller seeds, and are a bit crunchier than the Pole Cucumber. There is also like the uniformity of the cucumber. The English cucumber has a thin layer of plastic to protect it. I believe that is to protect it a bit more because the skin is a bit thin. Sometimes I peel them and other times, I do not peel the cukes. This cucumber is less bitter; therefore, they are perfect for salads or this delicious recipe.
