Cucumber Salsa

Adapted from Meeru Dhalwala and Vikram Vij. It is peach season here, so I added peaches to this salsa. I would not hesitate to use other seasonal fruits throughout the year, or even other veggies, like roasted butternut squash. If you do not add a sweet fruit or veggie, consider that you might need to add a pinch of sugar, and if you add something tart, like fresh cranberries, you will certainly need to add sugar.

Course condiments
Cuisine fresh chutney, salsa


  • 1 small red onion, finely diced and soaked in cold water for 15 minutes and then drained
  • 1 hothouse (English) cucumber, seeds scraped out, peeled if desired, cut into cubes
  • 2 ripe peaches, diced (I do not bother peeling)
  • 2-3 T fresh lime juice (lemon is ok too)
  • 1/4 t freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1 pinch salt


  1. Prepare the red onion and let it soak. Drain.

  2. Toss all of the ingredients together. Place in an airtight container and chill until needed.
