Ms. Farrell's Class Makes Salsa

Today Ms. Farrell's 3rd grader made salsa, sauce in Spanish, as a followup to planting a salsa garden as 2nd graders. We used some of the green onions from the lower garden in the recipe. The tomatoes from the school garden have finished fruiting. The rest of the ingredients were donated by Gelson's, a supporter of our seed to table program.

Thanks to Beverly Jacobs, Joyce Kupp and Laurie Vander Veen for helping.

Salsa Recipe

8 tomatoes (assorted colors if possible) cut in small pieces
1/4 bunch of cilantro, torn in small pieces
2 cloves of garlic
3 green onions
3 T. lime juice
3 T. olive oil
1/4- 1 jalapeno pepper depending on taste

Wash hands. Cut all ingredients in small pieces. Use a garlic press or mince the garlic. Note: Take care to not rub eyes if handling garlic or peppers and to wash hands again after cutting. Serve with tortilla chips.

 We used different colors of heirloom tomatoes to make the salsa look pretty.

This is a recipe that the students can make at home.
