3 Spins on Salsa

DSC_0765

Spin these 3 salsas into a food processor for an easy 1,2,3 Go-To Dip at your fingertips…

I’m using these savvy salsas as an appetizer served with crudites n’ gluten-free crackers…

As a dressing atop salads, pilafs and casseroles.

And enjoyed as a topping for my omelets, alongside my grilled fish and atop my poached chicken. 

My latest? And what I think is by far the best yet use for these 3 salsas: Poached salmon in the oven with a dollop of one of the below salsas, then placed into the oven at 350 degrees F for 20-25 minutes or until desired doneness.

It’s been a long week on this end. Still fighting the stomach infection and have been in the hospital all week as it seems I have been living with a terrible stomach infection since December…dealing with the pains each day, and going to numerous doctors appointments each and everyday only to end up 5 months later with more pain.  The latest news from my GI dr’s is that the medicine that I was given back in Dec-March contributed to making the infection worse and causing me more pain.  So, I’m keeping my head up; trying to say positive and dream about leaving the hospital soon (hopefully) and runnin’ into my kitchen to whip up a fresh batch of salsa.

Thank you to my amazing friends who sent me the most beautiful boquets of flowers that have brightened up my hospital room and kept me smiling while dealing with my pain.  I love you and appreciate your support and love.

I’ll tell you what; I’m surely looking forward to whipping up a batch of all 3 of these salsas soon.  Dreaming of being in my kitchen…just me, the food processor and some fresh veggies.

Now, I just have to figure out how what to pair these sassy salsas with… fish tacos, grilled tofu skewers, omelets, or salads.  The list is endless and I’m already brainstorming some tasty ideas.

With Cinco de Mayo coming up in a few weeks, go ahead and get a head start to fire up the food processor and create your very own sassy salsa.
