Fresh Grape Salsa


This simple and unusual recipe was given to me by a friend from Chihuahua several years ago. I planted grapevines along my front fence last year, and a few clusters have started to ripen (the only trouble is, they're not seedless). Many growers have grapes as well as all kinds of wonderful sweet onions, and of course fresh jalapenos, at the farmers' markets now. I got these sweet little Thompson seedless grapes from Crack Pot Herbs last weekend.

1 bunch of grapes, preferably seedless
1 jalapeno
2 T. chopped red onion
1 T. olive oil
Salt 
Freshly ground pepper

Slice the grapes in half. Seed and finely mince the jalapeno. Toss all ingredients together and serve with chips, or on tacos. Serves 4.

I'm going to double this recipe and take it to a party tomorrow night. It sounds wonderful.

Awesome!! It's a great party dish. Unusual, but not too weird.
