Got cucumbers?

Give this a try:  

Crisp cucumber salsa

2 cups finely chopped, seeded and peeled cucumber
1/2 cup finely chopped, seeded tomato
1/4 cup chopped red onion
2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and chopped
4.5 teaspoons minced fresh cilantro
1 clove garlic, minced or pressed
1/4 cup low-fat sour cream
1.5 teaspoons lemon juice
1.5 teaspoons lime juice
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon seasoned salt

In a small bowl, combine the first 7 ingredients.  In another bowl, combine the sour cream, lemon juice, lime juice, cumin and salt.  Fold sour cream mixture into vegetables. 

Serve with tortilla chips.  Can be served immediately, but I let mine chill for a few hours before serving. 

Calories: roughly 16 per 1/4 cup.

Note:  I used 1.5 tablespoons of dried parsley and 4 teaspoons of dried cilantro.  Came out just fine. (And got good reviews at an office pitch-in.)
