My sweet husband is a salsa lover/afficionado/ connoisseur of sort. I know I have my salsa verde perfected. I am doing pretty darn well with my roasted tomato salsa. But when it comes to fresh salsa, he is the one who puts the love in our fresh salsa. He loves to read cookbooks about salsa, he surfs the internet for cool new web site or blogs about salsa. Interestingly enough I said to him this morning: “why don’t you look in your Salsa Lovers Cookbook for something new to try?” He says: “I have a salsa cookbook?” Me: “uuuhh, well yes you bought it because it is about salsa….?” I give him the book, he reads it and says: “wow! that’s a great cookbook!” Me: “that’s what you say every time you read it!” He: “I do? That’s interesting.”
Yes, we are a good match….
Late Day Salsa (adapted from Salsa Lovers Cookbook)
4 medium tomatoes, diced and drained
1/3 medium white onion diced
1/2 cucumber peeled and diced
1/2 cup cilantro roughly chopped
2 jalapenos diced
Juice 1 lime
2 teaspoon salt
1 serrano pepper finely diced (optional)
Combine all ingredients and mix well…Simple and Fast!
So fresh and healthy, perfect for a barbecue or cocktail hour with some nice tortilla chips 😉
Note: The addition of the cucumber really enhances this salsa. Make sure you have a fresh cucumber, you wouldn’t want to ruin it with a mushy cucumber.
