Most of us think of salsa as the classic Mexican variety, made with raw tomatoes, onions, hot peppers and cilantro. But salsa, which simply means “sauce” in Spanish, can be many things. Try making your own unique salsa from the veggies in this weeks CSA harvest:
Start with diced tomatoes.
Add diced onions and minced garlic.
Add at least two of the following in
proportions that seem right to you:
diced bell pepper
finely diced hot pepper
finely diced celery/celery leaves
finely shredded or diced kohlrabi
diced, cooked, chilled eggplant
grated or finely diced carrots
Add fresh lemon or lime juice and a bit of olive oil. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Add some chopped fresh herbs. Toss well and refrigerate for at least one hour before serving.
