Why I Love This Recipe

FEATURING: Zucchini (and/or pattypan squash), tomatoes, jalapeño pepper, garlic or garlic scape and cilantro (optional).

A quick "salsa" that Jim created and that became a staple at our farm. It is not a juicy salsa but we find it is still great eaten with tortilla chips or added to your favorite tacos/burritos or served as a side dish with your favorite Mexican dish.

NOTE: In the guacamole Jim also did for this picture, there is avocado, fresh onion tops, arugula, lemon and salt! Arugula gives it a nice fresh twist (here is his recipe:! Also on the picture: sautéed peppers with onions and home-made tortillas.

Ingredients You'll Need

2-3 tomatoes, diced (ex: 1/2 inch cubes)
1/2 to 1 jalapeño peppers, chopped finely
1 zucchini (and/or pattypan squash), chopped (ex: 1/4 inch cubes)
1 garlic scape (or 1/2 to 1 garlic bulb), peeled and chopped finely
1 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
Salt to taste
A few handfuls of fresh cilantro, chopped (optional)


Mix all ingredients in a serving bowl. Serve. Voilà!

NOTE: Put less jalapeño first and add it, to taste (jalapeño peppers can range quite drastically in "heat" so you're better to add then to put too much).
