Ready for some super sexy salsa???!! The kind that makes your mouth taste garlicky so you can torture your loved ones with your dragonbreath??? HA! No really, this stuff is super good. I got these garlic scape thingys in my CSA bin last week, and for the life of me could NOT figure out what the eff to do with them. They look like long chives, but taste like raw garlic. Sounds pretty easy to work with, but I got a LOT of them.
The first thing I did, was use them in a fruit salsa.
Here's your recipe (about 2 cups):
4 ripe apricots
2 tablespoons chopped garlic scapes
1/4 medium sized red bell pepper
1 jalapeno, seeded and finely chopped
a handful of cilantro, chopped
1/2 cup chopped white onion
the juice of 1 lime
salt to taste
pepper to taste
Toss all of these goodies in a medium sized bowl and you have apricot garlic scape salsa! I served with grilled chicken and some green beans. YUM!
Any other ideas for the garlic scapes???? I would LOVE to hear them. This recipe only used about 1 strand, and I've got about 10 more. :)
Have a great Monday!
