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.


Yay Lays

Hooray for Lays! Their salt and vinegar flavor chips no longer contain milk. Very nice.

Way to go lays. Working that vegan mojo.

Now if only rice a roni would jump on the freight train. Does fried rice flavor really require milk? I think not.

It's nice their spanish rice flavor is milk, animal and egg free, but I am certain they can do better. I'm confident flavors other than spanish rice can successfully be made without dairy products.

Evenso, I really like the rice a roni brand because they do offer several vegetarian flavors. And that is much appreciated.

Many of the international foods I encounter are vegan. There's just a conspiracy going on here in the US. Milk is in all kinda foods it really doesn't belong in. The dairy industry has no business in my rice.

This is also a nice reminder that ingredients and recipes change. Foods which once were vegan or vegetarian can suddenly change and not be. And vice versa foods that once were unacceptable can alter themselves and become good. Always read package labels, visit websites and if neccessary contact manufactuers be certain what's in your food.
