Elizabeth's RAW Corn and Lentil Salsa

RAW Corn and Lentil Salsa
by Elizabeth

2 ears raw organic corn, cut off cobs
1/4 of a red bell pepper, diced
1/8 of sweet onion, diced
1/8 of a jalapeno, very finely chopped
1/2 C sprouted brown lentils
Lemon thyme, pull off of stems
Lemon basil, chopped
pinch of sea salt
fresh ground black pepper (optional)
Light drizzle of first cold pressed EVOO
4 capfuls of Coconut Vinegar
Generous squeeze of fresh lime juice
Mix all of the ingredients together. Enjoy!

This is summer goodness at its best. I eat this as a side dish and also as a main meal. It is not really a salsa but I just call it that. I suppose you could add in some summer tomatoes chopped fine or mashed and throw in some cilantro and create a salsa for some raw corn chips or raw crackers. Anyway that you serve it I am sure you will enjoy all of the wonderful flavors. I really love this recipe. I hope you give it a try!
~JMJ~ Today I am grateful for cleaning up the garage. What??? Yes, I am actually grateful that I was able to sneak away from the baby, who cries when I leave the room, and get some cleaning done. It is pretty sad that I get excited about more cleaning, but since our fifth child was born I really have to get creative in order to fit it all in. It seems like the younger three get all wild and loud whenever I switch on a vac. So I tend to put it off until I just can't take it any longer and I HAVE to clean. Dirty things freak me out, so this has been a real struggle for me. I am very anal about germs and things out of place. But I must admit, I have come a long way. I am not as bad as I use to be. Five kids will just naturally make you become more laid back about crumbs and toys all over the floor. Peace!
