Had a creative food moment today-
Juice of 2 Limes
Kosher Salt, Pepper, Garlic, Trader Joe’s Everyday Seasoning.
First I started chopping the fruit to small salsa sized bits and the idea came to me because the avocado wasn’t ripe yet. It was too hard to mash. So I chopped 1/4 of the onion pretty small and mixed it with the cilantro, a few large basil leaves, the spices to taste, and lime juice to bloom the favors. Next I mixed in all of the fruit. You could add bananas if you are going to serve it right away. If not, skip it because they will turn brown (not enough acidic juice to prevent it).
I tasted it and was amazed at the complexity that the small amount of basil brought to the table. It wasn’t quite juicy enough so I added a big splash of the orange tangerine juice to make it a saucy salsa. The taste is super fresh and bright because of the fresh lime juice. Remember, the fresher the ingredients the better the taste. I simply dipped corn chips and ate til the salt ruined the corners of my mouth!
Try this yourself and let me know what you think. You can post your thoughts below.
