My discarded bits

While chopping up the fruit and veg for last Sunday's salsa and guacamole, I was struck by how beautiful my discarded bits were.

  1. Okay, I'm *guessing* you made strawberry fruit salsa. No recipes!? Please post!

    Your discarded bits, however, are quite lovely. Makes me think of God prunes us. Even the discarded bits have a purpose. Composting produces good soil for even greater growth!

    1. :) you said just what i was thinking (and wanting to say but was too sleep-deprived to even put down coherently.) thanks mb.

      here are my mish-mash recipes

      strawberry salsa:
      - cut up a bunch of strawberries
      - add in some frozen corn (that's been microwaved and then drained to remove the water)
      - add a handful of chopped up cilantro leaves (washed thoroughly)
      - squeeze in some lime juice
      - grate in a little bit of onion
      - add salt and pepper
      - add in a splash of olive oil and balsamic vinegar
      - mix, taste, and adjust flavors to your liking
      - let it sit in fridge for the flavors to merry before serving

      and corn, tomato, and avocado salad:
      - microwave and then drain frozen corn, place in a bowl
      - add in a pint of cherry tomatoes (cut in half)
      - add a handful of chopped up cilantro leaves (washed thoroughly)
      - add in a chopped up avocado
      - add in a splash of olive oil and balsamic vinegar
      - grate in a little bit of onion
      - squeeze in some lime juice
      - add salt and pepper
      - mix, taste, and adjust flavors to your liking
      - let it sit in fridge for the flavors to merry before serving
