Salsa & Sangria: Making Fresh Heirloom Tomatoe Salsa with Local Organic Produce

By CoolGardenThings

In this video we made some really great heirloom tomato salsa from local organic produce, bought at the Ann Arbor Farmers Market.

Our goal here was to show

1) that is easy and fun to do and
2) to make a point about eating fresh foods that also support local farmers.
3) Plus, that we could play some Spanish opera while making salsa and get away with it ;)

We think we did all of that and then some…we even talked about a special promotion valid on Sangria Gel Fuel FirePots (while supplies last). Be sure to watch the video to get the code word with directions and head over to this link

Then, we talked about Shawn’s health and wellness course (Shawn was filming). Check out his free video course on health and wellness here.

We had a lot of fun making this video for you and once you see it you will realize why. Now, keep in mind that we used all fresh produce that was purchased that day at the local farmers market here in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

Even though we bought a huge box of “2nd’s” heirloom tomatoes, it was some of the best salsa we’ve made to date. Plus, in the video, we only actually went through about 1/3 of the tomatoes from the bags that we had…So, yeah, there was a lot of tomatoes for that $6 that we spent that you don’t see in the making of the salsa video.

We talked about having 2/3’s left after trimming, but again, that was not all of the heirloom tomatoes from the bunch!

Here is what we put in it:

Heirloom tomatoes, heirloom white and red onions, Italian parsley, hydroponic purple bell peppers, Hungarian sweet peppers, green bell peppers, red sweet peppers, jalapeno pepper and cilantro. Plus a few things that were not from the farmers market: black pepper, Celtic sea salt, cumin and lemon. Hope you enjoyed it and we look forward to making more fun, healthy eats videos for you again soon!
