EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

The skin of fresh cucumbers is edible. However, cucumbers purchased in grocery stores are often oiled or waxed to preserve their freshness. If the oil is heavy or can’t be washed off, you might prefer to peel the cucumber.

Use a mini food chopper to prepare the dressing. Process all the ingredients until they are well-blended.

Serve this fruit and vegetable salsa with grilled meat, poultry or fish; its sharp-sweet taste is especially good combined with smoky flavors.
