Avocado Tangerine Salsa
Cookbook: Ripe: A Fresh, Colorful Approach to Fruits and Vegetables, by Cheryl Sternman Rule, with photography by Paulette Phlipot
Word-of-mouth (food pun intended) works on me: with all the talk about this cookbook, it has quickly moved up to the top of my “must read next” list. Written by the food blogger Cheryl Sternman Rule (5 Second Rule) and photographed by Paulette Phlipot, the book aims to tempt readers to â€œembrace the vegetable, behold the fruit.â€ What fascinates me most is that the cookbook is arranged by color. That’s right: the chapters start with red (e.g., cherries, cranberries) and move through the spectrum to end with white (e.g., bosc pears, cauliflower). How fun is that?
When I read, in an interview with Sternman Rule, that Avocado Tangerine Salsa was one of her favorite recipes from the book, I had to take a look. Substituting tangerines for tomatoes, the recipe “looks gorgeous, tastes delicious and can be put together in five minutes.” This super-quick, beautiful green-and-orange summer dish simply colors me happy.
