About 7 months ago my students began planting the first seeds for our 2014 growing season, and now all the hard work and care that has been put into our garden is really paying off. This week we have been busy harvesting all of the ingredients for our 2nd Annual Salsa Week! This is one of my favorite activities here in the Green Chimneys Children’s Garden. For one thing, the outcome of all the students’ continued efforts are so tangible. And let’s face it, the salsa is delicious!
4-5 tomatoes (a variety of types tastes great and looks beautiful), roughly chopped
1 sweet pepper, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
bunch of chives and cilantro, chopped fine
Mix all ingredients, and any other items you have in your garden like jalapenos or leeks. If you still have corn or peaches, they could add some variety to this basic recipe. You can also blend it for a refreshing gazpacho.
