Cucumber, Blueberry, and Mint Salsa

This recipe is kinda the foodie in me coming out.

While I was in California my parents neighbor graciously shared a few cucumbers with us from his garden.  Since my parents almost always have blueberries on hand I started thinking of combining these flavors for a fun fruit snack.

Unfortunately I didn’t get the chance to experiment with them while in California…too busy lounging by the pool playing motor boat with Squirt and partying all night working until all hours of the night on a new project. 

Now that I’m home and I have even less time than I did while on vacation a quick, healthy snack is just what everyone needs.


I’ve been wanting to try Agave Nectar for awhile and I finally got the chance in this salsa.  You could easily use honey but I loved that the agave was thinner, coated the blueberries and cucumbers easily, and was a bit less sweet {at least mine was} than honey.  Agave Nectar can be very inexpensive and you should be able to find it at most grocery stores.

So are you intrigued?  New ingredients I’m schooling you on.  New projects up and coming.

My life is just so interesting.  All the time.

I will let you in on one project in particular, Red Faced Runners.  I wrote about it here and what was supposed to be one or two posts about the subject has turned into a full fledged community.  One I am truly honored to be apart of.

You always wanted a peek inside my head, right!?  Well, here’s your chance.  Why I Run – My Inner Monologue.

After you run promise you’ll try these flavors together.  Despite what you may think, it’s a winning combination.  Plus, your breath will be minty fresh all day long!  Trust me.  I was burping up mint clouds all day.  Wasn’t that a lovely picture to end with?


  1. Ooh I wouldn’t think of mixing cucumbers and blueberries. SO refreshingly pretty!

  2. This is so unique and different – I love your inner foodie 🙂

  3. My kind of salsa!

  4. I would eat this for the colors alone! That said, it sounds delicious too 🙂

  5. Seems perfect for summer!

  6. This is such perfect timing. I was staring at the cucumber and blueberries in my fridge wondering what to do with them this morning. Of course, I would never think to mix them together. Brilliant!
    I am going to try mine with honey, but only because I got a delicious jar from a local farmer the other day and want to use it. 🙂

  7. I can honestly say I have never seen anything like that. I think I would add some jalapenos, for some spice 😉
