CSA Pick Up: Week 11 of 26

Hello Farm Fans,

A little bit of a salsa kit this week. When I prepare salsa it’s always some of this and some of that. It never turns out the same way twice! So many options. I would love to hear how you prepare yours. For those of you that have opted out of the hot peppers, we are substituting Carmen Italian Peppers which are good in a salsa too! Just not hot.

Here’s my baseline recipe. Use more or less of each ingredient according to your taste:

1/2 an onion
Garden Salsa Peppers, start with one. Remove the seeds for milder heat. I usually use 3.
1/4 cup Cilantro
1 Bell Pepper
3 Tomatoes
2 teaspoons Red Wine Vinegar
1/4 teaspoon Cumin
Juice of 1/2 a lime
Salt to taste

  1. Place onion, bell pepper, cilantro, and jalapeno peppers into a food processor. Pulse until finely chopped. Add tomatoes, and pulse just a few times until the tomatoes are coarsely chopped. Transfer to a bowl.
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk together red wine vinegar, lime juice, cumin and salt.
  3. Pour dressing over tomatoes, and stir well. The flavor develops as it marinates for at least 1 hour.

Buen provecho!
