Stonebridge Zucchini Salsa Fresca
When the tomatoes are booming, the zucchini is out of control and the peppers are popping. So here’s what I’ve been doing with all of that, plus red onions and cilantro: Zucchini Salsa Fresca. The recipe below gives the basic equivalents for the ingredients. Just multiply as many times as you have tomatoes etc. The nice thing about doubling is you can use multiple colors of veggies: a green and an orange bell pepper; a gold and a red tomato; a green and a yellow zucchini. You want fairly small, uniform diced pieces so that it can be scooped on a tortilla chip. This salsa keeps well for a week—if you don’t eat it all first. It’s great fresh with chips but also nice in a quesadilla with cheese.
