|Six Knot Caribbean Salsa
All ingredients available at D&W Fresh Market
The sails are up, the wind is at our back and we need a snack. We have a smooth four hour sail from Bitter End to Cane Garden Bay in the British Virgin Islands. The weather is a balmy 85 degrees and the seas are calm. I have a stash of tropical fruit in the galley and more jalapenos than even our family could eat in a week. My only tool is a rusty bread knife and I’m holding the washed fruit in a bowl on the deck of our sailboat between my sandy bare feet. I chop on a cutting board which is sitting on my lap, while the the boat rolls through the waves. Juice is running everywhere and kids are helping by finishing off what’s left on the mango pits. Captain Buffet plays in the background. I’m throwing together what I have while traveling West at six knots and the result is this Caribbean salsa.
