What do you make when your CSA share includes five onions? Make salsa. The onion is not my friend, but since my husband ate an ENTIRE bowl of this in one night, it must have been good. What kind of stomach do you need to be able to eat this much salsa? I don't have exact measurements, but I chopped one large onion, two large tomatoes, cilantro, and one jalapeno pepper. Another pepper or two could have been added, but the one I used was strong and enough according to the iron stomach. I've also heard of adding a clove of chopped garlic and green pepper. Do you have and other ingredients you add to salsa?
Banana split on a stick.
I found this recipe in last month's Parenting magazine.
8 Tbs strawberry topping
4 bananas peeled and halved crosswise
1-1 1/2 strawberry ice cream, softened
8 Tbs pineapple topping
1- 1 1/2 cups vanilla ice cream, softened
1/3 cup chocolate fudge topping
1-1 1/2 chocolate ice cream softened
whipped cream, chopped walnuts, and maraschino cherries (for top)
1. Divide strawberry topping among eight 6 oz. plastic or paper cups. Insert a wooden stick into each banana half; place one in each cup, stick side up. Cover and freeze one hour.
2. Divide strawberry ice cream around banana, then pineapple topping, freeze 15 minutes.
3. Spoon vanilla ice cream, fudge topping and chocolate ice cream into cups until full. Place aluminum foil over cup with a slit in the center and freeze overnight.
4. When ready peel off the cups and top with whipped cream and walnuts. (Note; getting the ice cream out of the cups was not that easy for me)
