Sam doesn’t like salsa. But his humans do and we’ve taken over this blog to share one of our favorite salsa recipes with you. Why did we do this today? Because summer 2017 is just weeks away and what is summer without salsa? Not much fun in our opinion!
Salsa is a staple at Sam’s house. Although Sam has never eaten it, but he has eaten half a tennis ball (Half A Tennis Ball Can Kill You).
Sam’s humans eat it all the time on tortilla chips or rice or salad. We’re as obsessed with salsa as Sam is with playing catch with the tennis ball.
Enjoy the salsa, but sh-sh don’t tell Sam!
Authentic Mexican Salsa
1 can of diced tomatoes
½ red onion-cut into quarters
2 teaspoons garlic powder
1-2 Tablespoons dried red pepper flakes
1-2 teaspoons black pepper
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon Mexican oregano
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1/4 cup canola oil
3-4 Tablespoons of dried cilantro
Place all ingredients into blender. Blend until chopped and mixed.
Chill and serve.
Sam thinks the human tradition of leaving food gifts at the front door is weird, but he’s not complaining. He’d never tasted honey whole wheat bread until he found a sweet offering in front of the renter’s front door and gobbled down the entire loaf.
Sam was sucking up the last few crumbs of the loaf when his human found him and panicked. Sam knows that humans scare easily. And he felt bad about scaring his human, but not too bad. The honey whole wheat bread was delicious-nothing like his dog food.
Sam belched and laid down on the grass. The lump of bread in his belly was growing, he couldn’t get up off the ground. This made his human really scared.
Now Sam has observed that when humans get scared they grab their cell phone. He isn’t sure why, but it seems to make them feel better. It worked this time, because after looking at the cell phone for a few minutes, his human smiled and threw the ball for him…Sam got up off the ground for that.
Sam thinks humans should stop leaving food at the front door, but not anytime soon. He wants to try honey whole wheat bread again.
Sam, you sweet fella…..
