Zucchini Tomato Salsa Recipe

Wondering what to do with all her garden zucchini, Jennifer Magrey of Sterling, Connecticut came up with this versatile and colorful salsa: “I also serve it on crackers, burgers, chips, baked potatoes or over cream cheese as a spread!”
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. + chilling YIELD:4 servings


  • 1 cup seeded chopped tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup diced zucchini
  • 1/2 cup chopped sweet red pepper
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons lime juice
  • 2 teaspoons cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon chopped seeded jalapeno pepper
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • Tortilla chips


  • 1. In a small bowl, combine the first 12 ingredients. Cover and refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight. Using a slotted spoon, transfer salsa to a serving bowl. Serve with tortilla chips. Yield: 2 cups.
Editor's Note: Wear disposable gloves when cutting hot peppers; the oils can burn skin. Avoid touching your face.

"Wow, I can see why you won the contest! Good Job! This is something I would expect in my home state- CA; you must be Enlightened! (I'm serious- no derogatories intended to anyone). Everything's there: sweet, sour, salty, bitter: you did a great job of minimizing salt, but still have a hint of it; same with sweet. The extra "sour" compensates for keeping this health- friendly, and the heat from the small amount of chile compensates for the extra "sour." The cumin is just enough to give this a hint of "smokiness." This ROCKS (in the words of the Newest Generation)!"
