Broccoli Olive and Corn Salsa Recipe

I'm just mixing up cultures as I see fit. All cuisines, from all over the world, have the human palate in common. They can blend in some amazing ways. 
This has a really fresh and clean flavor. It's light, but filling. Ideal for the end of summer. It just needs a little bread or rice to go with it. 

Make sure when you serve it to coat the bread or rice with some of that scrumptious sauce!
Salsa Recipe Ingredients
2 broccoli crowns, chopped small
1 can small black olives, halved
2/3 cup frozen corn
1/2 cup frozen peas
2 shallots, diced
1 jalapeno, minced
1 poblano, diced
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 tlbs olive oil
1 tbl hot sauce
2 tsps spicy mustard
2 tsps salt
1 tsp black pepper
2 tsps dry thyme

Add all the ingredients to a large mixing bowl and stir to combine. Let rest overnight. 

The broccoli cooks in the acid and the frozen ingredients thaw without losing their color or flavor.


Garlic Galore

Do you like garlic? I mean do you really like garlic? Fresh from the head. Raw uncooked cloves minced.

In my opinion there is nothing better. Chop some fresh garlic. Butter some toast with vegan margarine. Sprinkle with garlic, salt and basil.

This is also a great way to use the ends of bread. When you use the heels of the bread toasted it tastes just like garlic bread from your favorite italian restaurant.

When prepping the garlic, really mash it hard for the utmost garlic flavor. That sticky juice that oozes out is where all the flavor and healthful properties are hiding.

If you cannot tolerate raw garlic saute in olive oil for a minute or two first.

But raw garlic will offer the best allergy help. Anytime your allergies are bothering you try eating some raw garlic as described here. It will clear up your sinuses and help to drain that phlegm.

Add raw garlic to pasta salad. When you douse it in dressing you will like the taste, but still receive the healthful benefits.
