I never made it out to the garden yesterday except for the shortest time. I woke up in the morning out of sorts. I had had vertigo on and off all night long. I was scheduled to work at the co-op and was a little worried if it came back while I was there, but I went to work anyway. Luckily it was a very slow day. I didn't have the room spinning around me at all, but moving around made me nauseous. I felt like I had just gotten off the Mission Space ride at Disney World.
So I all I really did was to go out and pick what I needed for dinner. And Raspberries - they have been producing for over a month now. I picked just one thing in the veggie garden, a huge bunching onion. It was for an apple salsa recipe. Not that I followed the recipe well, but it was yummy. My version was: 3/4 c of a Honeycrisp apple diced, 1/2 c orange pepper diced, 1/2 c Vermont cranberry beans, one huge bunching onion sliced, 2T wine vinegar, 2 T apple juice, a dash of chipolte pepper. The original came from my Canyon Ranch Cooks cookbook and is slightly different.
But I love their fresh salsa recipes. They are always putting weird things together that I wouldn't think of. I never would have thought of apple salsa, but it is apple season, so a good choice. It went perfectly with the spicy chicken and mexican rice. Yum.
