GOOD TASTE: Roasted Tomato Salsa

Sadly, I didn’t have the best tomato crop this year. The tomatoes looked good but they didn’t have that home grown amazing taste and they were a tad on the mushy side. I was disappointed because I love fresh salsa and fresh thin sliced tomatoes on my sandwiches.

GOOD TASTE: Beet & Apple Salsa

Beet & Apple Salsa Recipe via homework

Beets seem to be all the rage lately and since I had never cooked with beets before, I decided to give it a try. It’s hard to resist that beautiful deep red color and I love trying out new dishes that are interesting both visually and to the taste buds.

Good Taste: shrimp salsa

I haven’t posted a recipe in awhile. It’s not that I don’t cook or bake. I do…a lot!

It’s just that we usually eat the food before I can take any pictures. But I remembered to take pictures when I made this shrimp salsa for the Fourth of July. It’s easy to make and a great summer party dish.

I don’t have exact amounts for the ingredients but this is approximately what I used. And if you grow your own tomatoes or know somebody who will share their harvest, well, everything just tastes so much better.

6 tomatoes
1 cup shrimp
½ onion
1 carrot
2 Tbsp cilantro
1 garlic clove

Chop up the above ingredients into small pieces.

1 Tbsp lemon juice
A pinch of cayenne pepper or splash of hot sauce
Salt and pepper to taste

You can find a printable copy of the recipe
under the Goodie Bag tab.

Break out the chips and enjoy!

Good Taste: mango salsa

I made this mango salsa recently for a summer gathering and my friends loved it. At least they said they did and they ate it. It’s so refreshing and goes with so many meals.

I was planning on making this and my neighbor came by with fresh home-grown tomatoes this morning. What timing.

My personal goal is to master slicing a mango. I know the technique but I’m still working on perfecting it. Here’s the step-by-step: slice the mango down the long side, off center to avoid the pit. Do the same with the other side. Now you have two slices. Cut cubes without cutting through the skin.

With your thumbs push the mango inside out so that the cubes pop up. Now slice off the cubes with a paring knife. Do the same with the other half and cut up the fruit around the pit.

Add your diced tomatoes, onions, cilantro and drizzle with lime juice. You can use the mango salsa to top a salad, add to a fish or chicken dish or just eat it up.

You can find the recipe under the goodie bag tab.

Mmmmm – mangolicious!
