One of the very nicest things about life is the way we must regularly stop whatever it is we are doing and devote our attention to eating.

crystal beach olive salsa

Here's the olive salsa I served tonight at our gathering at crystal beach. We had it with tostitos SCOOPS tortilla chips. Recipe credit goes to Melissa Davis on this one.

3 cans large black olives, drained
2 cans diced green chiles
1 (28oz) can peeled whole tomatoes (undrained)
1 bunch green onions
1/2 bunch cilantro
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 Tb. lime juice (or juice from 2 small limes)
2 Tb. white vinegar
1/3 C. olive oil

to taste:
sugar (large pinch)
chili powder
season salt
ground cumin
fresh cracked pepper
cholula hot sauce - I would have added some but I was out of it...

coarsely chop onions, tomatoes, cilantro, olives. add oil, vinegar, lime juice. stir together. chop about 1/2 of mixture in food processor (or blender), taking care not to over-chop. mix together & add remaining ingredients to taste. chill. this makes a lot of salsa!!
