Cucumber Salsa

This is a quick and easy appetizer that comes together in a matter of minutes.  It’s light, it’s pretty healthy for you and it’s served cold which makes it perfect for summer entertaining.  The friend that passed this recipe along to me also suggested spooning it over grilled fish, which sounds amazing!
