Mexican Cucumber Salsa

Happy Cinco de Mayo! 

Don't let your Phase 2 successes get in the way of celebrating.  Make some stevia sweetened lemonade with a few chopped up mint leaves for a "Faux-jito".  Marinade some shrimp or any other meat with this Taco Seasonings, serve with this Cucumber Salsa!

Mexican Cucumber Salsa
(Serves 1)
1 whole cucumber, diced into small cubes
2 TB cilantro, chopped
1 TB red wine vinegar
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
1/2 tsp garlic, minced
1/4 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp celtic sea salt
1/8 tsp fresh cracked black pepper
Add a drop or two of stevia if you desire

In a bowl, toss together the cucumber, red wine vinegar and cilantro. Season with crushed red pepper flakes, garlic, cumin, onion, salt, and black pepper. Cover, and chill at least 30 minutes before serving.         
Note: Try this with a large whole tomato, chopped.

Phase 3/4:  Make a mix of cucumber, tomatoes, bell peppers, onions, jalapenos, etc... then add 1/4 cup mayo or full fat greek yogurt for a creamy salad or 1 TB olive oil for a lighter taste.
