Cooking in the CLG: Salsa Fresca

One of our summer program's biggest hits on the snack circuit was our Salsa Fresca! While we encouraged the kids to try cooking new dishes without calculated recipes, these are the ingredients you'll likely want on hand if making the salsa:

Must haves:
  • fresh tomatoes (diced)
  • onion
  • fresh cilantro
  • salt
  • cumin (ground, not whole seed)
  • olive oil
  • your favorite chip or cracker for salsa dipping
Here are some optional additions we used this summer:
  • fresh garlic
  • bell pepper
  • cucumber
  • zucchini (diced or sliced thin for chips!)
  • basil
  • chives or leeks
