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.


I Hate Shoprite

I do. And here's why.

They have these mooing cow and clucking chicken sounds when you're in the dairy department. Ha. Ha. Very cute.

As if the cows and chickens that made the milk and eggs are actually happy. Yea right.

Totally offensive to someone who has watched the movie Food, Inc.

Yet oddly, when one ventures over to the meat section, the moo and cluck sounds mysteriously vanish. Strange. I thought beef comes from cows and chicken from, well, chickens.

What, no, oinks in the pork section? But why not? Wouldn't that be truth in advertising?

To use the cow's moo and the chicken's cluck in the dairy section while only a few feet away those same animals are ground up and dead in styrofoam and plastic wrap seems unusually callous even for a supermarket.

Therefore, I hate Shoprite.
