Why I Love This Recipe

This is a light and cooling salsa. However, it can quickly become spicy-hot by adding the optional ground habanero chili powder. Pictured as a garnish to my Quick & Easy, Skillet Black Bean Garden Chili.


Ingredients You'll Need

juice from 1/2 fresh lime
1 medium cucumber
1/2 avocado
1 jalapeño pepper
Optional Ingredients:
salt
1 tsp ground habanero chili powder (optional) (1)
