Salsa Recipes: Green and Traditional Red

Aug 30th, 2014 Posted in Healthy Recipes | no comment »

I decided that salsa needs some experimentation, especially related to the spices so I bought both regular large ripe red tomatoes today at the farmer’s market and tomatillos for a green salsa.

2 Large red tomatoes chopped

1 small onion chopped

1 clove chopped garlic

Chopped fresh spices such as cilantro ( hand full) is what the recipe calls for but I used handfuls of chopped basil, a sprinkle of fresh thyme and sage.

I love the farmer’s market. I go every Saturday during the spring, summer and fall months. I believe it is healthier to eat from the locals. They don’t use as much pesticides and you are supporting people who work hard at their craft! I believe that farming is an art. It is full of wonderful colors!

Today I bought some Mustard Greens. These greens are very nutritious, full of vitamins and minerals. They have a bit of a bitter taste. Try a piece of stem raw, and it almost feels like it is spicy!

More Salsa For the Summer and Later on!

Some great fruit salsa to freeze for the winter months!

 

I decided that I would like homemade salsa all year long.

I have grown many tomatoes ( too many for me!) and the farmer across the street has even more than me. So what to do? Make a big bowl of salsa and freeze it.

This salsa has no cooking time.

You want to have the tomatoes on the ” not so ripe side” so that they stay in the freezer without wilting.

Just mix up the ingredients very well and put in the freezer for later.

Summer is the time for Salsa

I love salsa all year long, but in the summer there are a lot of fruits that you can add to your salsa to spice it up. Today, I used some apples and cantaloupe. It looks and tastes delicious.

Here is the recipe: Fruity Salsa

2 large tomatoes or 1 can tomatoes. Fresh works best!

1 cubed small onion

fresh spices of your choices. Cumin, parsley, basil, stevia, and sage ( I used fresh parsley, sage and basil which I chopped finely) You can also use prepared spices.

2  cubed green peppers

1 cubed orange pepper
