Remember when I told you I like spicy things? Like, I really love them, and one of the best summertime snacks is salsa! Those ripe tomatoes, fresh cilantro, crisp onions… YES. Not only is it always a crowd-pleaser (and crowd-feeder!) but it’s so low maintenance and simple to prepare. I of course like it with lots of heat and a little bit of a smoky flavor, but with some light tweaking this easy salsa can also be made wimp-friendly (mild, I mean!).
Okay, time to get real. I have a confession to make.
Until a year or so ago, I hated sweet potatoes. Despised. Couldn’t stomach the thought of consuming the squishy orange-ness. But in all fairness, my only real experiences with them growing up was an über-sweet casserole with way too many marshmallows and not enough texture. Was I being a brat? Maybe, but I was scarred for life. Fast forward to 2016 — I’ve been promoted at work, I’ve taken up yoga, and I’m running out of ideas for quick, easy meals.
