Strawberry-Cucumber Salsa

It's almost Friday! Woohoo!

I have to work on Saturday, so I still have 2 more days to go, as opposed to most of you who just have 1, but that's fine with me!  A weekend is a weekend. 

I've discovered a new route to work, which involves taking the scenic route downtown, but it avoids the congested highway and gets me to work on time - without me having to leave any earlier than normal.  So score one for me!


I know this is late in the season, fresh strawberries are hard to come by - but that doesn't necessarily stop me from making this.  It's a great condiment for tacos or fish, and even better as a replacement for tomato-based salsa as a dip for tortilla chips!  I've been in a real dippy mood the past couple of days, haven't I?  Sorry, can't help it!

Ingredients:
Adapted from Perry's Plate's recipe


10 strawberries, diced
1/2 English cucumber, diced
1 scallion, thinly sliced
small handful of cilantro, chopped
salt and pepper, to taste
1 jalapeno, seeded and minced

In a medium bowl, combine strawberries, cucumber, scallion, cilantro, and jalapeno.  Season with salt and pepper to taste. 

Serve with tortilla chips or as a topping for fish or tacos!


Well, I'm off to enjoy a nice bowl of some carrot-ginger soup and some of Andy's famous grilled cheese!  Have a great night guys!
