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.


Some Vegan Snacks


It can be hard to find cookies and snacks that don't contain eggs or dairy. But they do exist.

Oreos are vegan. I like the all vanilla ones, but that's just me. All flavors are safe. Nabisco makes some oatmeal, iced oatmeal and snickerdoodles that also are. They come in the red package shown in the pic and are crunchy and delicious.

For a salty snack try low salt lays potato chips. They taste beter than the full salt classics, which are also vegan. I just like the low salt. They taste better.

I've been wondering if animal crackers are vegan. Dunno. But have been wanting some and need to look into it. Does anyone know if they are?
