This is a great summer time meal that rehydrates the body and satisfies the senses. You can add some hot peppers to spice it up or enjoy as is. A few raw crackers on the side are a nice addition.
Mix all ingredients in medium sized bowl and chill slightly. Makes a meal for one person or a light meal for two.
1 large cucumber small chop
5-6 heirloom tomatoes small cut
Handful of cilantro fine chop
2-3 sweet peppers small cut
2 stalks of celery small chop
¾” fresh ginger root finely diced
½ lemon juiced and chopped (not rind)
1 avocado small chop
I used a striped Armenian cucumber which is soft skinned like the Persian and some of the Asian varieties. I use them because they have great flavor and are so much easier on the palate.
