Serve with all your Mexican favourites, but especially good on my Mexican Pulled Pork Tacos! Quite often when I make Mexican style food, I will throw together a quick and easy little salsa using fresh tomatoes, like the one in this recipe – but I’d never really stopped to think about the fact that this version of salsa, though similar to the ones I’ve always been served in Mexican restaurants, is totally different to the kind you usually buy in a jar from the supermarkets to dunk your tortilla chips in! Actually variations on my salsa recipe have already appeared a few times on Easy Peasy Foodie, but I wanted this lovely Easy Peasy Salsa Fresca recipe to have its own entry on my blog, so it could be more easily found and so I could link to it from other recipes.

twice-baked potatoes with kale As I do every year, I woke up the morning after Thanksgiving with dueling urges to consume pie for breakfast as well as to repent with an endless sequence of brothy vegetable soups until I no longer dreamed of pumpkin cheesecake, cranberry caramel almond tarts and chocolate silk. I vowed make the wholesome side triumph this year, however, yet somewhere along my righteous path to eating kale salad for breakfast, lunch and dinner, I remembered that kale salad tastes absolutely nothing like pie and that was basically the end of that.

The inspiration came from a version on Food52 created by the blogger behind Brussels Sprouts for Breakfast who had served these, I think rather brilliantly, as a side to her family’s surf-and-turf Christmas Eve tradition. Serves 6 as a side; 3 as a hearty main
