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.


Best Sandwich Ever

I had the best sandwich I've had in years this morning. It moved me so much that I was compelled to photograph it in the hopes that a visual image would somehow guarantee I could taste sometthing that good again.

It was a vegetarian sandwich. But it was entirely transcendent. I can't see how anyone could not love it. The combination of textures, flavors and spices were such that I found myself wishing I could go back in time and eat it all over again. Only slower.

Even if you eat meat and enjoy consuming it you need to explore the concept of bean sandwiches. They make much better sandwiches than cold cuts. You also need to try replacing your mayo or mustaard with hummus. Even if you choose to build your sandwich using meat products you won't regret swapping out your usual condiments for this wonderous concoction. It's the world's most perfect condiment. And it comes in an array of variations to please every individual. It's healtheir with lesss fat, more wholesome ingredients and amazingly tons more flavor.

My ultimate sandwich was constructed as follows. Two slices caraway seeded rye bread. Artichoke and spinach hummus spread on both slices. 2 spoonsfuls black beans. 1 slice provolone cheese. Several slices white onion. A few crunchy dill pickle chips. A handful of romaine lettuce. That's it. That's all there is to an overwhelming orgasmic sandwich experience. Don't believe me. I dare you to try it for yourself and say it doesn't curl your toes.
