Guess what? It's been exactly 1 month since I last posted a recipe. Can you believe that? Summer flies by!
I've been too busy having summer romances with:
1.Agatha Christie novels.
2.Sundresses, especially ones from Kohl's.
3.Actually, I'm in love with all Kohl's dresses.
4.Eggplant, especially the eggplant rice bowl at Doc Chey's.
6.And fruit salsa.
There's really nothing not to love about fruit salsa. It's fresh and flavorful, pretty, and ridiculously simple. And just bursting with antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals. I feel kind of cheated that in all my years of eating and cooking and enjoying food, I'd never had it.
Uuntil I made this recipe. And it was love at first bite. And my whole family felt it too. Then my mom mom found this one. It was not quite as awesome, but it was awesome. And then I made up another one. Oh no! I forgot the measurements. But I remember what it had in it:
Mango-peach berry salsa:
Bell Pepper (<--red would be prettiest)
Fresh cilantro (<--one of my current obsessions)
Pita or Tortilla chips, for serving
Then finely chop everything, saute the onion in cooking spray, and mix everything together. Serve with chips.
See? A child could do it.
I made another one, and this time I remembered the measurements:
5 c watermelon, coarsely chopped
1 c blueberries, coarsely chopped
1/2 white onion, finely chopped
1 bell pepper, finely chopped (I used 1/2 orange and 1/2 yellow)
A few springs fresh cilantro, chopped
1 jalapeno, finely chopped
Saute the onion in cooking spray, then combine everything. Serve with tortilla or pita chips.
I'm not sure what my next recipe should be. I've been cooking a lot recently! How about you pick? I like to do things my way, though, so don't expect this to become a regular feature. OK, here's the list:
1. low country boil
3. a muffin or quick bread
4. a fruity dessert
5. pancakes or waffles
wow, I just realized that all those contain an unhealthy form of carbs. Oh well.
