This is one of my favorite salsa recipes for something fresh and a little different.  I got the recipe from a favorite restaurant that has since closed but I’ll tell you now they only gave me what was included in the recipe and I haven’t made it by measuring anything yet.  I totally go by taste as I go – with just a couple of exceptions.  I’ve debated for a long time sharing this recipe here since I am not giving exact measurements but I really find that experimenting a bit with flavor is fun.  The only place exact measurements matter is in baking so you can know the basics here, as I did, and have fun making adjustments to get it just right for your taste.

Ingredients
  

  • Cucumber
  • Fresh tomatoes
  • Red onion
  • Pepperocini juice from a jar of pepperocinis
  • Lemon Juice
  • Honey

Instructions
 

  • I started with one english cucumber, seeded and diced.
  • I added fresh, diced tomato to equal about 2/3 of the amount of cucumbers I had.
  • I added fresh, diced red onions to equal about 1/2 of the amount of cucumbers I had.
  • I cut a lemon in half and squeezed one half of it into the mixture.
  • I added a couple of tablespoons of pepperocini juice.
  • I added a tablespoon of honey (fresh, raw).
  • At this point, I mixed everything together and tasted.
  • Then I adjusted the pepperocini juice, the lemon juice and the honey to taste.
  • I highly recommend this recipe. It can be used with chips or really just about anything. At the restaurant, we had it on top of a wonderfully cooked salmon but I’ve also enjoyed it myself with tortilla chips. Don’t be shy about the juices and honey…have a little fun and just add little by little until you get the consistency and taste you love.
