A summer time switch up from a tomato based salsa by using yellow squash or zucchini. So fresh and flavorful and could be easily added to tacos, veggie bowls or as a topping to my Chipotle Roasted Artic Char Recipe.
by: Josh Jenkins
WHAT YOU NEED
4 small yellow squash (zucchini or other summer squash are great substitutes)
½ small red onion, diced
⅓ cup apple cider vinegar
¼ cup olive oil
Pinch red pepper flakes
¼ tsp chipotle powder
½ bunch cilantro, chopped
himalyan pink salt
ground black pepper
LET'S MAKE THIS!
To dice the squash: trim the ends off, then cut the yellow parts of the squash off, leaving a rectangular prism of white seedy parts
(discard or use in a squash muffin, etc). Cut the yellow edges of the squash into small dice.
(The seeds will make the salsa an unpleasant texture and too watery!)
Combine the ingredients and season with salt and pepper to taste.
HEY I MADE THIS!
Hi, I’m Josh! I’m an elementary school teacher in New York City. When I’m not teaching the babies how to read, you can probably find me in the clearance section of Bloomingdales, at the theater, at Central Park with my two (rescued) pups Hans and Lily. All while obsessing over The Golden Girls and Dolly Parton.
