¼ cup Red Onions, fine diced
4 sprigs Fresh Cilantro, chopped
2 tbsps Olive Oil
1 Lime, juice only

⅛ tsp Milled Pepper

Method: 

Fresh Tomato Salsa

In a small bowl add tomato, red onions, and cilantro, toss lightly then add oil, lime juice, salt and pepper.

Succotash

In a medium-sized pan over medium heat, sauté the bacon until it is nice and crispy and has rendered a bit of fat. Toss in your onions, jalapeño, eggplant and corn. Stir occasionally and cook for 5 to 8 minutes or so until the onions just begin to soften. Add your cumin, coriander, salt, pepper, butter and hot sauce, lower your heat, and gently toss until you’re ready to serve.

In a baking dish spread goat cheese on the base then top with the succotash and bake for 10 minutes in your oven on broil. This will caramelize your succotash making it ready to serve. Add your salsa in the middle and garnish with fresh cilantro and pepper.

Feel free to clean your fridge for ingredients, this recipe is just a guideline; other veggies are good in it as well like peas, beans, broccoli etc….
