Any Time Salsa
1 can of diced tomatoes
½ onion diced
2 cloves garlic chopped fine
1 hand full of cilantro chopped
½ jalapeño pepper (or more if you like hotter salsas) chopped fine
2 green onions chopped
Seasoning salt to taste
Combined all ingredients into one bowl, stir together and serve. If you like a smoother salsa blend tomatoes, onion, garlic, and jalapeno in a blender. Then add the rest of the ingredients. This will keep in the refrigerator for 3-5 day.
4 oz Cream Cheese
4 oz Smoked Salmon chopped
12 oz Sour Cream
4oz to be mixed with cream cheese
8 oz to be layered on top of the salmon
1/8 Red onion finely chopped
1 tbsp Fresh Dill
Mix 4 oz of cream cheese and 4 oz of sour cream together. Start by layering ingredients with the cream cheese and sour cream mixture. Then layer all the other ingredients and it’s ready to go.
Garlic salt to taste
A splash of lemon juice ½ tsp
Cut the avocado in half. Separate halves, remove the pit and scoop out the avocado with a spoon. This is an easy way to remove the skin off the avocado. Use a fork to mash the avocado and mix in the garlic salt and lemon juice. Guacamole is a good addition to a lot of foods. I like guacamole on eggs, on salad or as a vegetable dip.
8 oz can of Garbanzo Beans drain about half the liquid out
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp Tahini sauce (sesame paste)
2-3 tbsp olive oil (cold pressed is best)
Salt and pepper to taste
Hummus can be made in a food processor or in a blender. Blend all ingredients together and serve. For variations to this I have done roasted eggplant, brewer’s yeast, roasted garlic, cilantro or basil pesto mixed with hummus. Your options are endless.

This is a very easy and fast meal. Start by cutting up all the ingredients. The cooking time on this is about 10 to 15 minutes depending on the type and size of the vegetable pieces.
