Summer In A Bowl

We always have a large garden and this year is no exception. We start our plants from seed early in the year in the greenhouse and then transplant to the garden. This year we have 60 tomato plants, Okra, Onions, Watermelon, Leaf Lettuce, Cucumbers, Dill, Cilantro, Asparagus, Cantaloupe and of course jalapeños! Nothing tastes like summer than a big bowl of cucumber, onions, vinegar, sugar, water, salt, and pepper.  I thought I'd change it up a bit and it turned out to be a huge hit. I think this will be served on those hot days as a refreshing taste of summer!



2-3 medium cucumbers, peeled and chopped

1 medium onion, chopped (we had some small onions that I just sliced)

10 cherry tomatoes or 1 large tomato, chopped or sliced

8-10 slices of candied jalapeños, cut in half

1 tablespoon cilantro, chopped

Juice from 1 Lime

1/4 cup candied jalapeños juice from jar

salt and pepper to taste


Combine all the above ingredients in a medium size bowl. Mix well together and refrigerate for at least 2 hours for flavors to blend.
