Cucumber Fruit Salsa
No, really. They were.
The point is, when we lived there, we ate a lot of chips and salsa. A lot, a lot.
Austin's parents are big snackers. I'm not saying all the time, but often, we'd all sit around a bowl of salsa and a bag of tortilla chips and that was dinner.
"What do you want for dinner?" "I don't care what sounds good to you?" None of that.
I know what I'm having for dinner tonight.
CUCUMBER FRUIT SALSA
1 green bell pepper
1/2 red onion
1/2 orange, peeled and segmented
1 Tbsp. lemon juice
1/2 Tbsp. minced cilantro
1/2 Tbsp. minced parsley
1 small garlic clove, minced
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. hot sauce
1/8 tsp. pepper
1 peach, peeled
1/2 banana, peeled
1. Coarsely chop the cucumber, bell pepper, tomato, red onion and orange. Mix together in a medium bowl.
2. Stir in lemon juice, cilantro, parsley, garlic, salt, hot sauce and pepper. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to bring the flavors together.
3. Just before serving, chop the peach and banana then stir into the salsa. Serve with tortilla chips.
