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.


Simplest Dessert Full of Flavor (Vegan)

This is the simplest, cheapest and best tasting dessert. It takes about 30 second to make and costs only pennies. It's also vegan and by extension vegetarian as well.

Ingredients
1 Slice Soft Style Whole Grain Bread (Like Stroehmans or Freihoffers or Wonder)
Peanut Butter
Chocolate Syrup

Spread the peanut butter on the bread. Swirl with chocolate syrup.

That's it. Eat and enjoy. It's very simple. It super quick to make and is quite delicious really. It really hits the spot when you want something sweet and rich and a little bit filling. The peanut butter adds some nice nutrition, but is also decadent.

Some interesting variations also come to mind. Strawberry or caramel syrup or any combination of the three. Other nut butters like almond or cashew or macadamia. You could also use a more desert like bread or even a bagel. Cinnamon swirl or raisin... the permutations are endless.

But the idea at it's core is to keep it very simple and still achieve a sweet dessert treat. Peanut butter and chocolate syrup on a humble piece of soft bread - it sounds too easy, but I love it and you will too.
