Oh, the aroma of fresh picked tomatoes that brims with the smell of mid summer gardening, and the hunt for zucchinis hiding under the greenery of the thick leaves and vines.

It may be another gorgeous summer weekend with lots on the go, but the vegetables are ready and this simple recipe for Zucchini Salsa is a must try. 

This #gardentotable salsa is perfect over grilled chicken or salmon, enjoy with tacos, with eggs in a burrito or an omelet, the ideas are as endless as your palate can imagine.

Try this simple recipe for an aromatic side that will wow your family with great homemade tastes! No Garden?  No Problem!  Your local market has all the #gardentotable you need and shopping local is always a delicious option.

First, as you tend to the garden let some zucchini grow to be three times the size of what you find in the grocery store.  Allowing them grow a slightly bigger is perfect for cooking and baking.

Here is what you need to begin:

  • 1 medium zucchini, washed, irregular cubing w/skin
  • 6-8 mid-size tomatoes, washed, irregular cubing w/skin
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 red pepper, diced
  • 1 lime squeezed
  • 2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp Spinach & Herb Seasoning
  • ½ tsp salt
  • Olive Oil

In a large saute pan offer a long pour of your favourite Olive Oil, I love the bold flavours of the Tuscan Herb from the Olive Oil Company. Heat the pan to medium adding the zucchini and onion.  Saute until approx. 5-7 minutes until cooking down and golden. Move gently through the pan to not burn.  While your vegetables are cooking, chop the garlic, pepper and tomatoes.  Add this mixture to the sauté pan when timing is ready, also adding the Lime, Smoked Paprika, Cumin, Spinach & Herb Seasoning and Salt. Give this an occasional gentle stir. Simmer together for 10 minutes and voila, you are scratch cooking Zucchini Salsa made your way to enjoy! If you like the heat, use ½  jalapeño chopped added to the recipe as well as the red pepper.  This offers the heat that some enjoy for a savoury food sweat.

This recipe comes from my garden, to my kitchen, to my plate and hopefully now yours. I offer the  Three T’s on my recipes.   Tried, Tested & Tasted! With gardens a plenty, connect again & discover what’s on the menu with Spicy Jan.
