Ethan's Garden Fresh Salsa


This morning Ethan decided that he wanted to try making salsa with ingredients from our garden. He surveyed the garden to see what he could use, and came back with two ripe tomatoes, a banana pepper, a small jalapeno pepper, some cilantro and parsley. After I gave him a few pointers on how to safely chop and dice the produce, he ended up with a very tasty salsa.

Here are the ingredients that Ethan used for his homemade salsa. Almost everything came from the garden.

1 very large tomato, chopped

1 small cucumber, chopped

1 banana pepper, chopped

1 very small onion

4 sprigs of cilantro, chopped

2 sprigs of parsley, chopped

1 clove of garlic, chopped

jalapeno pepper, about 1 tsp chopped

1 tablespoon of olive oil

salt and pepper

And Ethan's the one who just turned 8, right? (Or had just, at the time you wrote this.) He's going to be quite the chef!
