Versatile Salsa

Cucumber SalsaIn many parts of the country, salsa is some mushy tomato stuff in a jar. In reality, the definition of salsa is a mixture of chopped vegetables (or fruits) that is used as a condiment. I decided to use some of the cucumbers from this week’s box to make a salsa to serve on grilled fish. While the fish was grilling, I was “sampling” the salsa with chips, and it tasted good for that, too! Feel free to adjust the proportions to your taste. Salsa is not an exact science!
