Oysters Sicilian Style

My recipe this month is a simple twist on a salsa or a mignonette that can be spooned on fresh shucked oysters or clams or tossed with shrimp and chilled angel hair pasta. It's a cool refreshing condiment for the last hot month of the year.

                                    Oysters Sicilian Style

2 dozen shucked oysters or clams (keep chilled)
1 small red onion (minced )
1 small red bell pepper (minced)
1 small cucumber (minced)
1 tsp. fresh chopped garlic
1 / 2 cup balsamic vinegar
2 TBs. fresh dill weed (minced)
1 tsp. sugar
1 / 4 cup extra virgin olive oil
Fresh ground pepper and sea salt to taste
  1. In a medium size mixing bowl, place all ingredients in and blend well. Chill for 1 hour and spoon on the oysters or clams and enjoy.
