Tomato Salsa with Cucumber Chips

There is absolutely nothing like homemade tomato salsa with cucumber made with fresh-from-the-garden tomatoes and cucumbers. Don’t you agree?  All the ingredients in this robust tomato salsa provide many great health benefits on their own and when combined provides a salsa that will have your family and guests coming back for more. You will find this recipe refreshing and similar to a pico de gallo, whatever you’d serve that compliments pico de gallo, also works for tomato salsa with cucumber chips.  Adding cucumbers as “chips” or even in the salsa itself, as well as other fresh veggies if you like, makes this entire recipe low-calorie, vegan and absolutely perfect for your next cookout. It also makes beautiful presentation (don’t forget yummy) for a luncheon buffet. Enjoy!
