Grape Salsa

When you think of salsa, grapes may not immediately spring to mind, but we are about to
change that. Grape salsa has surprisingly become a staple when we have visitors, and once
you try it you’ll understand why they always want the recipe to take home. When making any
fruit salsa, the sweet flavor of the fruit is a beautiful contrast with traditional salsa ingredients like
spicy jalapeños, garlic, and cilantro. HMC Farms grapes are sweet, crisp, and juicy—all perfect
characteristics for your new favorite salsa ingredient. Whether you use this on tortilla chips, pork
loin, or crostini, we are sure that you’ll keep coming back to this recipe again and again
throughout summer and fall when our California table grapes are in season.

Here’s what you’ll need for about 18 servings (no judgment if you eat all 18 servings at once):

  • ~3lbs of HMC Farms grapes, sliced or quartered
  • 1 large bell pepper, finely chopped
  • 1 jalapeño*, minced
  • ½ a large red onion, minced
  • 1 bunch green onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 bunch cilantro, chopped
  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • Salt & pepper to taste

*remove seeds for mild salsa, or leave them in for spicy salsa

Once you’ve chopped up all of the ingredients, simply combine them in a bowl and stir gently.
Let the mixture sit for about 30 minutes and stir gently once more before serving. This can be
served as a snack with chips or crackers (scoop style tortilla chips are perfect), a garnish on
protein, and even on top of brie or goat cheese. We may or may not have just eaten it with a
spoon in the past too. Note that this salsa is best within about a day of being made, but we’re
pretty confident it won’t last longer than that anyway.
