I have a scrumptious and healthy recipe for you today thanks to my daughter. This cucumber salsa is a perfect recipe for summer. Not only is it refreshing; even more importantly, it is deliciously addictive as a salsa and snack.

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.

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.
