Peach Salsa With Fresh Veggies From The Garden of The Man
September 6, 2011
Normally, we only post recipes that include cheese, but this fresh salsa came out so good, we served it with a small cheese plate and deemed it qualified for inclusion… of course, as master of this small universe in the Pacific Northwest, I can pretty much deem whatever I choose…
As you know, The Man has been gardening in earnest this year, starting with his small greenhouse and moving to the great outdoors when the weather permitted. We feared the weather would not deliver bounty but the last few weeks have brought us lots of veggies and herbs for The Lady to use when she cooks.
Today she made a salsa with a peach, not grown in The Garden of The Man, but the rest of the ingredients were “home-grown”:
1 Large, Ripe Peach, Chopped
2 Small Red Tomatoes, Chopped
Handful of Yellow Grape Tomatoes, Chopped
1 Green Bell Pepper, Chopped
1 Jalapeno Pepper, Chopped – Kitchen Tip: Do NOT scrape the seeds out with your nail; it leaves a lingering burn… just saying…
Fresh Parsley, Chopped
Fresh Mint, Chopped
Salt, to taste
Freshly ground Pepper, to taste
Truvia, to taste
Pick fresh veggies and fruit from garden. Rinse under cold water.
Chop everything and toss together in a bowl.
Sprinkle with salt and truvia – The Lady used ½ tsp of salt and about 1 tsp. of Truvia.
Grind fresh pepper to taste.
Marinate in fridge for an hour before serving.
