Tara's Imaginary Friend

Tara's partner in all things food actually does exist. Here I am, a little slower to get started but no less enthusiastic about the Succulent Sage and all the fabulous food you will find here. As mentioned by Tara, no matter what subject we start to discuss it eventually ends up in the gastronomic realm. We love new recipes. We love to cook. We love to eat (and a little glass of wine would not be turned down!). And now we can share our passions with you. You may not always find a traditional recipe with proper measurements, but you will always find inspiring thoughts on food, recipes that we love, and maybe a laugh or two (see Tara's Trashy Food List).

Now to the real reason that this is my first post to TM's 6th or 7th. I am not a very decisive person, and I can't decide what recipe to share with you. I have just started making a most delicious corn and avocado salsa, or maybe I should put up the blueberry pecan crisp, or I could kick things off with my husband's amazing ribs. I simply can't decide. Tara would say put them all up! But that might overwhelm everyone, so I am going to start with the one that I don't have to get up from my computer and check the recipe. This one is my variation for a yummy summer-y salsa that goes great with anything that comes off the bbq.

1 diced avocado
1 roasted corn cob
1 diced tomato
2 tblspn diced red onion
2 tblspn chopped fresh cilantro
1 tblspn lime juice
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
salt and pepper to taste
a few dashes of hot sauce (optional)

remove corn from cob, combine with remaining ingredients. I like to add the avocado at the end after everything has been combined, this keeps it from getting too mushy.

Important serving hint: goes best with ice cold mexican beer! Cheers
