So Many Peppers....So Many Tomatoes!
Picked some more fresh veggies from our potted vegetable garden! We have a great selection of peppers this year as you can see pictured above - yellow bell peppers, hot banana peppers, and chili peppers. These peppers are HOT! We put a couple into a pasta sauce tonight and I can still feel my lips burning over an hour later! We also used some fresh basil from the garden as well, and some (store-bought) onions.
There are lots of cherry tomatoes - those yellow ones that you see are the heirloom "Snow White" variety of cherry tomato. I didn't find that it tasted terribly different from a regular cherry tomato, but it adds a great variety of color if you mix them together when making something with tomatoes! We took the tomatoes and made a fresh salsa, also using some of the hot peppers. This salsa is spicy hot! We essentially followed this recipe, posted on my blog last summer, but also added a splash of white wine vinegar.
Gotta love the summer and fresh veggies, especially the kind that you grow yourself!
