TOMATO TIME :: Fresh Tomato Salsa

Basic Salsa

I like to make this salsa with a variety of tomatoes, especially with an heirloom or two to add color, interest and flavor. Any tomatoes will do as long as they’re ripe. Whatever you have on hand.

Basic Salsa Recipe

Ingredients:
3-4 ripe tomatoes, cored and chopped small
2 small torpedo onions or shallots or 1 small red onion, chopped small
1 garlic clove, peeled and chopped small
1 jalapeno, chopped small
Juice of 1/2 lime
1 Tablespoon chopped cilantro
Kosher salt and pepper

Directions:
1. Prepare and combine all ingredients. Stir well, add generous salt and pepper.
2. Taste and adjust seasoning as needed.
3. Serve immediately with tortilla chips.

Farro with Fresh Mozzarella and Arugula Walnut Pesto

Farro Salad with Arugula and Walnut Pesto

I tried out this farro recipe after seeing a recommendation on EcoSalon. It’s very tasty, and great to have for lunch, a snack, or to complement a fresh arugula salad with radish, or the like. I didn’t use all the pesto I made, although I think I should have added more of it to the farro in retrospect.

Here’s a link to the recipe: Farro with Fresh Mozzarella Salad and Arugula Walnut Pesto.
