Grilled Salmon with Avocado and Cucumber Salsa
Adapted From A Recipe By Our Sporting Chef Friend, Scott Leysath

This one is best cooked on a smoky grill, but you can broil or pan-sear if you'd prefer. The salsa has a mixture of textures from smooth and creamy to crunchy. If you make enough of it, it can serve as your salad course. The salsa maker at the right works wonderfully if you cut your vegetables down to about an inch size. No more "fine cutting" by hand necessary.
