Fresh Cucumber Relish

Fresh Cucumber Relish

The long holiday weekend went by quickly, as they always seem to do.  Thank you to all who linked up at the hop. I was happy to see so many of  you made it. I hope you all had a lovely long weekend in the (US) and a lovely weekend overall for everyone. I enjoyed spending time with my hubby and being back in the kitchen again and having a routine. I am found of routines.

We picked a lot of  fresh veggies from our garden this weekend and they are perfect for today’s fresh and light recipe for cucumber relish. This is perfect over fish, like this striped bass my hubby caught.  Over chicken breast, or you can even put it on a lettuce wedge for a terrific salad.  I adapted this recipe from my brother in laws cucumber salsa recipe which I also included below.
