Author Notes: I made this recipe when my partner was no longer able to eat tomatoes (gasp!). She loved it so much it has become the main salsa in our home! I like it a little spicier, so sometimes I will toss in an extra chili. It is a great way to use up those extra cucumbers you will have this year. -chefgirlchefgirl

Food52 Review: A simple twist on pico de gallo makes for a nice cool, tangy salsa that would be great with grilled fish or lamb. - Merrill
