It is good, and so convenient. I can make a bowl or cup anytime. I like using Walmart's Great Value salsa. It's cheap, chunky and comes in mild, medium or hot.


If you can't see the bright side of life, polish the dull side.

I puree up leftover panzanella salad with a little bit of dill. Last year we added a couple radishes for a nice peppery kick. Yum! Hurry up tomatoes!

It satisfies the craving and I don't have to end up with a gallon at a time.
Easy to do at work, too! Yum, thanks Z!

We were watching one of the public TV stations this past weekend and saw Hubert Keller make this recipe. Haven't tried it yet but it sure looked good and we do intend to try it later on. It was a cocktail party foods show.

Green Grape and Almond Gazpacho
2 English cucumbers, peeled
1/2 lb green grapes
1 shallot
1 cup whole milk yogurt
2 cloves garlic, peeled
4 oz almond flour
3 Tbsp sherry vinegar
½ cup extra virgin olive oil

Optional: Vanilla Oil

Slice cucumbers in half lengthwise. With a spoon, scrape out the seeds that run through the middle of the cucumber. Slice the seeded cucumber into 3- to 4-ince pieces.

In a food processor or blender, combine the cucumber, grapes, shallot, yogurt, garlic, flour, vinegar, olive oil, and ¼ cup water. Blend until smooth.

Pour mixture into miniature martini glasses or shot glasses. top with 5-6 drops of vanilla oil and a frozen grape skewered on a toothpick.

Vanilla Oil: Cut a vanilla bean in half lengthwise and scrape out the podes from the center with a knife. Combine the vanilla pods with a neutral oil such as grapeseed and let the mixture sit for 3 days to develop flavor. Strain before using to remove the vanilla pods and place into a squeeze bottle.

I like to add some chopped cucumber along with the celery and the vodka. Healthy shooters
