Cucumber-Grape Salsa (for grilled chicken)

Yield: Yields about 1-1/2 cups

Servings: 4

This is a pretty mix — pale green with flecks of hot red chile. If you want a spicier salsa, include a few of the seeds from the chile. It’s perfect with grilled chicken.


  • 3/4 cup diced seeded cucumber
  • 3/4 cup halved seedless green grapes, roughly chopped
  • 1/4 cup loosely packed cilantro leaves
  • 1 fresh red serrano or jalapeño, cored, seeded, and very finely chopped
  • 1 Tbs. extra-virgin olive oil
  • Kosher salt to taste

    The first time I made this salsa I used black and green grapes; the second time with red and green grapes and a bit of minced red bell pepper for color. I now serve it as a salad and everyone raves about the flavor combination!
