Kumquat Tomatillo Salsa

My Inspiration

We have an amazing Kumquat tree that produces lots of fruit by early summer.  To be honest until we moved to our place, I never really had kumquats and did not know how fun and creative you can be with them.  So last year was a good year for kumquats since the last 2 springs we did not get any fruit off the tree.  I was so excited to see what I could make with the kumquats.  I created this recipe for our soft taco with grilled trout and oh boy!  It was delicious!  I wish I could have kumquats year round just so I can make this salsa.  This salsa is super easy and fresh!

Ingredients 

2 cups of kumquats, sliced in half and seeds removed

10 ounces Salsa Verde, mild or hot (depends on your taste preference)

1/2 cup fresh orange juice

1/4 cup vinegar

2 tablespoons garlic, fresh and minced

1 small bunch cilantro, stems removed

2 tablespoons roasted cumin seeds

Lime juice, about 3 limes squeezed

1 red onion, diced small

1 red bell pepper, diced small

1 green bell pepper, diced small

1 jalapeno, minced 

Salt and pepper to taste

in a blender or food processor, puree the Salsa Verde, orange juice, vinegar, garlic, cumin seeds, and lime juice.  Place the kumquats, onion, bell peppers, and jalapeno in a medium bowl, add the puree, and mix well.

 

This salsa will keep, covered and refrigerated, 4 to 5 days.
