Do you remember the tip to cut down the sides of a bell pepper which leaves the core and seeds? Well, I read this past week, that this trick also works well with Roma Tomatoes as well so I decided to put it to test in making a Cucumber Salsa recipe I found on Pinterest. It worked so well I also did it with the jalapeño pepper as well. After all, the least amount of handling of the jalapeño works great. Especially, since we recently moved and I cannot find my disposable gloves yet :).
Be sure to peel your cucumber then slice it down the middle lengthwise. Take a spoon and take out all the seeds and pulp. By removing the centers from the tomato, jalapeño and cucumbers it helps to keep the liquid down in this Salsa recipe.
Again, this recipe is not mine as I found it on Pinterest. Also, I did not have any limes on hand so I used my Lime Essential Oil - 2 drops to 1 cucumber and 1 Roma tomato in my bowl. A great quality and affordable essential oil can be found:
