Cucumber Chutney- a Great Summer Side

Do you get tired of the same old same old meals and sides? I know I do and I bet my kids would say they do as well. We use a lot of dips and condiments in our house. I often try to think of other ways to add flavour without adding all of the bad stuff. You know like fat and calories.  With summer quickly approaching I am excited to try out this Cucumber Chutney recipe. The more colour in your diet the better.  This sweet and spicy combination is surely going to be a hit.
