  • 1 Lebanese cucumber, chopped
  • 1/2 red onion, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1 tbs parsley, chopped


Combine all ingredients and toss well.

Salsa will keep for 3-4 days, covered, in the refrigerator.

Try mustard instead of mayonnaise to add extra flavour to your salads and sandwiches.

    Very versatile and tasty side dish. I put half the amount of onion and I added corn too. Served with guacamole from this site too.
