Method: 

Combine cucumbers, onions, salt, pepper, garlic, lemon juice, oil and parsley in a bowl, cover and refrigerate salsa for up to 6 hours.

Prick sausages all over with a fork or toothpick. In a covered skillet, steam sausages with a few tablespoons of water for about 8 to 10 minutes. Drain.

Heat grill to medium high. Brush sausages all over with oil and grill carefully until browned on all sides. Meanwhile, very lightly grill pita bread just until warm and slightly browned.

Serve grilled sausages in pita bread, topped with salsa.
