How to Make Crisp Cucumber Salsa
The trick to getting the perfect texture to this recipe is in deseeding the tomatoes and cucumbers prior to adding them. This prevents the salsa from becoming watery.
Wondering how to deseed a tomato? Deseeding is the process in which the seeds are removed from fruit. Slice off the top and the bottom of the tomato to make it stand easily. Make a slice down the tomato and run the blade of a knife along the inside of the tomato, much like filleting a fish, thereby removing the seeds.
To seed a cucumber, cut it half, lengthwise. Use a spoon to scoop out the seeds.

- If you’re wanting a Vegan option you could use Sour Supreme (Tofutti) in place of the sour cream.
