Cucumber Salsa


Hello from the Outer Banks! Remember last year’s trip? Things are off to a better start this year except for the weather. It’s been a stormy few days here but that only means more time in the kitchen. I’ve kept myself busy making rainy-day essentials. You know, brownies, scones, rice crispy treats and ice cream. But I didn’t really think this through because now we’re caged up in this beach house running around on a sugar high. Eight of us. Five adults and three kids under four. We’ve played sardines, dolls and hide and seek. We’ve depleted the toy supply. It’s time for a nap. And some vegetables. I read about this salsa in the June issue of Bon Appetit. It was featured as a garnish for tuna. I imagine that would be perfection but I didn’t try that. I got fancy and garnished a bag of tortilla chips. Hey, I’m on vacation. Crunchy cucumber and fresh mint give this salsa a different flare. There are no tomatoes, but you won’t miss them. It’s green, fresh and healthy. It’s what summer tastes like all diced up. It’s got some really great heat going on. The original recipe called for a jalapeño with the seeds. I enjoy spicy food so I went for it but you could easily seed the pepper or leave it out completely. OH! I have to go. Sorry to be short but the sun just came out and this salsa tastes way better served on the beach with a side of trashy magazines.

  1. What a cool salsa! I’ve really fallen in love with cucumber this summer, so this recipe is perfect. Not to mention how delicious it looks!

  2. Hope you enjoyed the Outer Banks. One of my favorite places to visit. Just found your site on Virginia is for Bloggers. Glad to find another gluten free blogger out there. Thanks for the great recipe!

    • Awesome! Just checked out your site and you’re in Chesapeake?! That’s where I grew up!! What part?

  4. The next time I read a blog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as much as this one. I mean, I know it was my choice to learn, but I truly thought youd have one thing attention-grabbing to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about one thing that you might fix for those who werent too busy searching for attention.

  5. I抦 impressed, I need to say. Actually rarely do I encounter a blog that抯 both educative and entertaining, and let me let you know, you’ve gotten hit the nail on the head. Your idea is excellent; the issue is something that not sufficient people are speaking intelligently about. I’m very happy that I stumbled throughout this in my search for one thing referring to this.
