Everyone who knows me, knows I love salsa and there’s nothing easier or more satisfying than making your own (green light all the way!)  My favorite all-time clean salsa is this ‘deconstructed’ cucumber salsa…. (And, yes, this is an actual picture of the actual salsa I made this morning at Cambiati)

Ingredients:Deconstructed Salsa at Cambiati

  • 1 cucumber – rough cut
  • 2 tomatoes – rough cut
  • juice of two lemons or limes
  • 1/2 bundle of cilantro – rough cut
  • sea salt – to taste
  • optional – jalapenos, diced
  • optional – purple onion, diced

Combine all ingredients together and let sit for an hour or longer.  Feel free to “mix” the layered elements for more traditional salsa.

This is an excellent source of non-starchy veggies.  It’s delicious atop meats, salads and even as a stand-alone side dish. You may want to make a big batch – because it will go fast!
