photo(62)

This pickle salsa received MANY hits when I posted it earlier this summer. I just made this again over the weekend to go with our grilled chicken, and then sent the last bit of  leftovers to school in Anna’s lunchbox. This is definitely a great dish to bring to any football or tailgate party!

  • 1 cup chopped dill pickles (I use WF’s 365 brand – no food dyes in this one!)

  • 1/2 cup fresh chopped tomatoes

  • 1/2 cup chopped yellow bell pepper

  • 1/2 cup diced onion

  • 1 cup pickle juice

  • 2 teaspoons garlic, minced

  • Touch of salt

  • Pepper

  • Fresh cilantro

Place all ingredients (except cilantro) into a bowl. Stir and cover. Chill and serve with fresh cilantro as garnish. It is best made the day before. Enjoy on black beans and rice, with tortilla chips, or over a bed of romaine.

Okay- so summer doesn’t really end for us Floridians on Sunday when the calendar declares it is the first day of fall. But the harvesting of summer veggies and fruits are coming to an end 😦 Here is a nod to sweet summer crop!

  • 2 pints cherry tomatoes, sliced in half

  • 1 1/2 cups organic corn, roasted (spray with olive oil and back at 350 for about 10 min.)

  • 2 cups organic celery, chopped

  • 4-5 large basil leaves, chopped

  • 1 garlic clove, minced

Place all ingredients together in a large bowl and gently mix. Add fresh ground pepper if desired. Chill in refrigerator until ready to serve. Eat as is or over a bed of your favorite greens.
