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.

Lightlife Taste Tests

So I've tried several Lightlife foods. Smart Deli turkey, ham and bologna style. Lightlife hotdogs too.

The bologna style is great. Really great. I love it. Perfect smell, flavor and texture.

The hot dogs are also good. Very nice taste. Good scent. Texture, not perfect, but very nice.

The turkey and ham, I liked, but did not love. But that is just me. They had their merits. The texture was good. I just thought the flavor was lacking a little bit. IMHO the bologna style is better.

I still need to try the fake ground beef. I wanted to try the buffalo wings, but the eggs in the ingredients turned me off. I don't eat eggs.

I saw on their website they have all kinds of items I've never seen in my local stores. Sigh. Their veggie burgers look really good. And are vegan from the ingredients listed on their site.

Some of their stuff can be expensive. The ground beef is. $3.99 for that little packet seems extreme. But the deli slices and dogs are very reasonable. $2-3 per pack. And I get 4-5 sandwiches out of them. More out of the dogs. I just eat one at a time. Even when I eat two it's still 4 times.

Their bologna deli slices are great with pickle and onion. If you eat cheese they are supreme with borden american singles (which are vegetarian) or any of many vegetarian cheddar cheeses.

Their dogs are awesome with sauerkraut and some ketchup or mustard. Or cut them up and mix them into some mashed potatoes. Heaven.
