It's that time of year when we are reaping the harvest--benefiting from all of our earlier hard labor--and approaching a vegetable glut! Hot weather makes us want to cook less, so think about making salads in the morning or on the weekend to have for supper, then you just need to slice some tomatoes and cucumbers and maybe steam some corn. Enjoy the bounty now!

Combining our peak of the season summer vegetables--tomatoes and chiles to make salsa--results in a fiery and flavorful dish. Homemade is easy to do and so much better than store-bought. Chop it by hand or use the food processor.

Three Sisters Saute

Three Sisters Saute

7 comments

Here is a dish to enjoy right now! Squash, beans, and corn are crops that are often grown together in the southwestern U.S. and are commonly referred to by Native Americans as the three sisters. This sauté is easy to make and the measurements do not need to be exact. Sometimes, I might not have a bell pepper, other times I might add a ripe tomato, finely chopped. If you do not like cilantro, substitute fresh basil, or Italian flat-leaved parsley combined with some Italian oregano. The roasted chiles add a wonderful flavor—if they are not hot—add serranos or jalapenos for heat according to taste.
