Mississippi Caviar

Still just trying to find ways to use up my ever-growing crop of tomatoes! Funny name, but this one is a nice variation on fresh salsa.

5-6 roma tomatoes, diced
3 cans black eyed peas, rinsed
4-5 green onions, chopped
2 cans Rotel tomatoes
1 pkg Zesty Italian dried salad dressing mix
2 T vinegar
2 T olive oil

1/2 diced jalapeƱo
black beans

Serve with Tostitos scoops!

Lazy Man's Fresh Salsa

I love fresh salsa, but I really don't like spending all day chopping veggies. So here's my lazy man fresh salsa recipe. I made this a couple days ago, and it's all I've wanted to eat since :-) I especially like it with Hint of Lime Tostitos! I put amounts next to each ingredient, but it's really to taste, so experiment to see what you like (I don't really measure anything)!

6-8 medium Roma tomatoes
1/4 onion
1/2 bunch cilantro
1 jalepeno or chili pepper, seeded
juice of 1 lime
1 T minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon salt

Put everything into your blender or food processor & blend to desired consistency.

Tomato Cucumber Feta Salad

I have tomatoes coming out of my ears, so I decided to try out something new. I just threw all this together (after hearing of something similar) and it actually turned out to taste pretty good!

cucumber, chopped
tomatoes, chopped
small onion, chopped
1 package tomato-basil feta cheese
1 package dry Italian dressing
1/2 cup vinegar
1/2 cup oil

Mix everything together for a yummy summer salad!

Happy Cooking!
