Mexican Cucumber Salad

This past weekend Jocelyn and I had the chance to be together  at a beautiful wedding and spend time with lots of family we don’t get to see often.  Summer offers so many opportunities for family reunions, summer celebrations,  and backyard cookouts – you just gotta love it!

This Mexican Cucumber Salad is perfect for such gatherings – it goes great with burgers, chicken, or whatever you’ve got on the grill.   The veggies are fresh and crisp with a light dressing to compliment them and the colors are so beautiful you just can’t help but dig in!  It will stay fresh in your frig for a couple of days – so make enough for left overs.
