You’ll want to make a double batch because this recipe will be gobbled up in no time! What a perfect way to get your kids to eat their vegetables! For this recipe, we used a variety of colorful tomatoes from Farmer Jones Farm Tomato Box. This is a must-have for this summer! This box is packed full of baby specialty, cherry, toybox, and heirloom tomatoes. Plus, enjoy a sampling of our Italian Signature Blend, basil, and cilantro – I used about 1/2 the basil and cilantro per recipe. I’m going to use the Italian Signature Blend herbs in my next pasta dish!
I got the specialty zucchini from their Best of the Season’s Box. Adding zucchini to this fresh salsa adds great flavor, texture, and health benefits including valuable minerals, including calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, and plenty of potassium. It is a low calorie addition to this salsa. The zucchini from Farmer Jones Farm are baby zucchini, this means they are milder in flavor and softer so that they can be eaten raw.
This tomato box offers amazing flavors that you can’t get at traditional stores as the Chef’s Garden use to only be open to chefs. Just recently they expanded to ship directly to consumers. Their produce is a specialty and offers superior nutrition and flavor.
My family planted tomatoes in our garden this year and they were all destroyed by blight. Salsa is always our favorite thing to make in the summer. I was so sad. I thought my garden fresh salsa was the best until I used the heirloom tomatoes from Farmer Jones Farm. Wow, it’s just incredible the difference. It is freshness and flavor overload. Seriously, it is that good. I made one batch of salsa yesterday (and took these photos) and had to make another batch tonight because it is that good!
