“fresh serrano chile salsa recipe fresh tomato and corn salsa recipe”

I bought all the ingredients to bake a cake to celebrate, then my dishwasher broke down. I was not about to wash all those dishes by hand. So, let’s shout happy birthday with this mango salsa recipe that I made for a potluck last weekend. It’s colorful, right?! Almost looks like confetti up close.
When working with a limited palette, good ingredients make all the difference. We call for vanilla beans here because they impart fragrance and thousands of tiny, flavorful specks. They’re worth the splurge, but feel free to substitute 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract for the beans. And if you like, trade the homemade whipped cream for a scoop of ice cream. What’s so beautiful about this dish is how it is presented: peaches and cherries that have soaked in a beautiful Riesling mixture are dolloped with whipped cream. They look gorgeous and taste even better.

Did you know the hottest part of peppers are the white ribs or membranes (pith) on the inside of the peppers. They’re hotter than the seeds. The more of the ribs you leave on, the hotter the salsa will be. The seeds will add some spiciness since they’ve been rubbing against the pith. If you like your salsa on the mild side, cut out the white part on the inside and remove all the seeds.

You can use other peppers besides jalapeños, if you wish. Serranos are good, or if you like it SUPER spicy (I don’t…), toss in a bit of habanero. The jalapeños in my garden didn’t make it this year, but I grew another small hot pepper that worked beautifully. (And of course, I don’t remember what it was called now… Lame.)
Yes, the pico can get watery, especially when it’s left for awhile. I typically try to only make enough for one sitting, since the next day it can be quite watery. If you make it and consume it within a couple of hours (letting it sit for at least a little while so the flavors can meld), that is typically your best bet. And using a slotted spoon of course helps when it’s a bit too watery 🙂
It was my first time ever using cilantro. When I chopped it, the smell was VERY strong. I was kind of scared but put the whole 1/4 cup in. Next time, I will use only 2 tablespoons because it was a new herb to me and so overwhelming. I also used lemon juice instead of lime juice.
Now that I had the salsa, Tina and I both tasted it on Tostidos White Corn Restaurant Style Tortilla Chips. The salsa was pretty good, but lacked something. After mincing and mixing in two more cloves of garlic and throwing in some more salt, we found the optimum mixture of flavor.
Never made my own salsa before, I have always been lazy and store bought it… but if the recipe is this easy, quick and delicious it is definitely something that I will be making from scratch next time!
Slice your peaches down the middle and discard the pit. Once the grill is hot, set peaches (cut-side down) on the grill and close the top. Grill for 8-10 minutes, until peaches are very juicy and have those nice charred lines running across. Remove peaches from the grill and turn off grill.
Wish I’d seen your hub last summer when I accidentally planted about 5 too many tomato plants. I them all blanched and frozen for now as I am not brave enough for canning – and even if I were – I don’t have time. I will bookmark your page for future recipes.
