Surprising Citrus and Cilantro Salsa

As I’ve been noshing on and enjoying the spectacular flavors of fresh cilantro, combined with my love affair with olives, I’ve been dreaming up creative ways to combine the two in a new and interesting way.
 And, as spring and summer are on my mind, citrus and the bright orange reminder of warmth ~ fresh navel oranges ~ is simply a natural draw.

I am passionate about people. I simply love to bless others. More than that, I seek to heal others as well. Whether those blessings or restorations take place through my words, actions, or spirit, my effort and ability to touch others is simply a part of who I am.I have a way with words. The written Word is both my inspiration and my favor. The Word feeds me as I nurture others.I know food. My relationship with food is both vast and intimate. I know the chemistry of food, I know the art of food, and I oh so know the emotion of food. I adore food and yet I grieve it. My goal, though, is to respect food for what it is – nourishment.
