Salsa That Brings A Tear To Your Eye

Gone are the days of walking around Kroger with a cook book in my cart, borrowed from the book aisle, figuring out what I need for recipes.  Today, I whipped out my iPhone and looked up ingredients for salsa.

I’ve never been good at making salsa.  I’ve tried a number of recipes but they never seem to taste right to me.  I’ve used recipes from several folks whose salsa was delicious.  Again, no luck.

When I mention to others I cannot make good salsa, I generally receive a sermon about what should be included. Some thought there should be more cilantro, less garlic, more pepper, less… I realized, a while back, that I am making salsa for me, and it has to suit my taste.  This morning I looked up several recipes on line while standing in Kroger’s produce area, for one last hope of some inspiration, and finally put my phone away.  So, I just threw vegetables into my cart. 

At home I spent – what is always a grueling process for me – time prepping all the vegetables.  I cut, chopped, and mixed the colorful array of fresh vegetables, and then grabbed some spices – salt, pepper, cumin.

The first taste was unbelievable!  It tasted just right to me.  Now, I only hope I can recall everything I did!
