The trick to getting the perfect texture to this recipe is in de-seeding the tomatoes and cucumbers prior to adding them.

You’ll Need:
2 cups finely diced seeded peeled cucumber
1/2 cup finely diced seeded tomato
1/4 cup diced red onion
2 Tbsp minced fresh parsley or 1 tsp Dried Parsley
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and chopped
4-1/2 tsp minced fresh cilantro
1 garlic clove, minced

1/4 c sour cream or plain greek yogurt
1 1/2 tsp lemon juice
1 1/2 tsp lime juice
1/4 tsp ground cumin
1/4 tsp seasoned salt

Tortilla chips or Crackers

In a small bowl, combine the cucumber, tomato, red onion, parsley, jalapeno, garlic, and cilantro; stirring gently to incorporate all the ingredients together.

In another bowl, combine the sour cream, lemon juice, lime juice, cumin and seasoned salt. Pour over cucumber mixture and toss gently to coat.

Serve immediately with tortilla or crispy zucchini chips.

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