Meet Tina

Aug 30, 2011

Tina Luttrell with her refreshing cucumber salsa.

South Dakota Magazine now has an even better connection to the beautiful north country of South Dakota — and her name is Tina Luttrell.
Tina has joined our office staff, and is performing a myriad of duties already. 

She grew up on a Walworth County town, near the little city of Hoven — which of course we've featured on several occasions because it is home to the famous Cathedral of the Prairie, one of the West's most amazing rural churches.

Tina and her husband, Jim, lived in Bristol before their recent move to Yankton, where he manages the Graham Tire Store. They have two daughters. Brittany, 20, works in Sioux Falls and Cassandra, 15, is a sophomore at Yankton High School.
On her very first morning, the former 4-Her brought a cucumber relish to the office. Do you think she'll fit in here or not?

Tina Luttrell’s Summer Cucumber Salsa

3 medium to large cucumbers
1 green bell pepper
1 tsp fresh garlic
½ cup red onion
2 jalapeno peppers
2 tbsp minced cilantro
2 tbsp minced fresh dill
3 squeezes of lime juice (from wedges or lime bottle) 

Chop, toss, and chill overnight. Enjoy with tortilla chips – scoops work best!

Tina is a delightful young woman married to a delighful young man. Her husband and I share a nephew in Nick Leigh, my Godson and son of my brother. Tina braved the cold and rain to attend the South Dakota Festival of Books in Deadwood a few weeks ago where she and her husband Jim attended each of my presentations for my book "Six: A Football Coach's Journey to a National Record". I was so impressed with her delightful personality and am glad she has joined the staff of my favorite magazine. Congrats Tina and Bernie, you have a gem there.
