cucumber + zucchini summer salsa

cucumber + zucchini summer salsa

fact - i took 4 years of spanish

fact - i was addicted to my aunt shelly's chicken enchiladas (well, everyone in my family still is)

fact - my mom & dad ate chips and salsa every single night...they liked to warm their salsa in the microwave, is anybody else weird like that?

i am a fan of mixing salsa into my tofu scramble & omelets, topping burgers and loading up anything that includes daiya & a tortilla

cucumber + zucchini summer salsa

i still remember the distinct smell in the kitchen the year my mom decided to be betty crocker and can her own salsa
fact - my mom definitely is not betty crocker & that was the one and only year she canned salsa
hmm that came out wrong - my mom is a great cook, but you probably won't find her cooking just for the fun of it

homemade canned salsa is good and all but fresh salsa is even better
fresh, bright, bold flavors

 
cucumber + zucchini summer salsa

cucumbers & zucchini are a welcome addition to an otherwise classic salsa
the coolness of the cucumber balances the heat of the hot red rocoto peppers

plus a perfect way to make use of  the abundant zucchini still giving from the garden

this recipe makes enough to share with a friend

it feels good to give - we all should give a little each day & do a little good for another
