For those looking for a less traditional way to celebrate Cinco de Mayo take a look at this recipe for Strawberry Cucumber Serrano Salsa courtesy of Satisfied (a great food blog I follow). I will probably add more cilantro because I love.love.love cilantro!
1 Serrano pepper- finely chopped (about 1 Tablespoon)
1/4 cup red onion - extra small dice
4 limes - zested and juiced (about 1/4 cup of juice)
2 cups fresh strawberries - extra small dice
1 cup Hot House English cucumber - skin on extra small dice
2 Tablespoons of grape seed oil
1/2 cup fresh cilantro - chopped
3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 black pepper
In a medium bowl combine all ingredients and stir well.
Allow salsa to sit for at least 20 minutes before serving.
If you are not serving the salsa relatively soon reserve the salt and lime juice until ready to eat. The salt and lime juice will break down the strawberries and they will become mushy.
