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!
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!
