I got to thinking about Cinco de Mayo today, and how it's right around the corner ... which also got me to thinking about this totally tasty Grape Salsa.  Because I got to thinking about how I hadn't made it in a long time.  Like a very  long time.  And then I realized I also hadn't yet shared this totally tasty Grape Salsa recipe here on the blog.

So of course you know what I did today, right?

I whipped up a big bowlful of Grape Salsa to enjoy and share with you!

With it's mix of red and green grapes, red onion, jalapeno, cilantro, fresh lime, and finely chopped cucumber, this Grape Salsa may seem like a bit of an odd flavor combination.  But trust me ... it's a flavor combination that's completely delicious.

The hit of sweetness from the red grapes pairs perfectly with the acidity of the green grapes and fresh lime.  And the little bit of cilantro and jalapeno? ... so yummy.  The jalapeno is seeded, so there's not a lot of heat in this salsa.  But you could easily amp it up by leaving in some of the jalapeno seeds and ribs.

I love to enjoy Grape Salsa as we all do traditional salsa ... scooped up with some nice-and-crunchy tortilla chips.  But the salsa also very nicely compliments grilled chicken or fish.  Just spoon a little bit over the top for a wonderfully flavorful topping!  Not to mention with it's purple and green, it's quite pretty too.

So grab your grapes and mix up this totally tasty and unique Grape Salsa to enjoy.  As for us?  We'll be enjoying our bowlful tonight alongside honey-lime marinated chicken.

And probably just simply scooped up with some chips, too ... just the way I like it best.
