On September 29, Ms. Bihari's class made salsa using tomatoes, jalapenos, limes and garlic from the farmers' market and cilantro and onions that they'd planted last year in the the school garden.
They ate the salsa with tortilla chips.
Each table of children had a different task to accomplish, e.g. cutting up tomatoes in small pieces, tearing the cilantro. An adult was assigned to help each group. Thanks to the parents and Carolyn Hasselkorn for helping with the lesson.
8 ripe tomatoes
2 onions or several small onions
½ bunch cilantro
2 cloves garlic
2-3 jalapeno peppers
3 T. olive oil
3 T. fresh lime juice
salt and pepper to taste
