Zero Calorie Cucumber Chips and Salsa

It is that time of the day again. Halfway between lunch and dinner and my tummy starts to grumble at me. Since I have a angel and a devil on each shoulder, the devil is telling me to go get some chips. The angel gently reminds me that I can satisfy that hunger with all the flavor and none of the calories. Thank you angel! With Superbowl approaching, you can make a big bowl of this salsa, chop up several cucumbers and enjoy the game the healthy way! 

Once again, you can eat this all day long because by the time you have digested this, it actually takes your body more energy to digest and it becomes a negative calorie food. Enjoy!

Negative Calorie Cucumber Chips and Salsa
2 cucumbers, peeled and sliced diagonally
1/2 sweet onion, diced
3 ripe tomatoes, diced
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
2 garlic cloves minced
1 jalapeno, diced (can add or reduce according to your heat preference)
Salt and pepper to taste

In a small bowl, mix together the onion, tomatoes, cilantro, minced garlic and jalapeno. Stir and add salt and pepper to taste. 
Place your sliced cucumbers on a plate and top with salsa and serve. I garnished my plate with cilantro, but it is not necessary.
