Who needs chips? A spoonful into my mouth, oh my…I close my eyes.
Green coolness, fragrantly salted hits the tip of my tongue and
Garden onion aroma goes up my nose;
Black pepper accompanies the bite
And as it slides toward my throat I taste
Fire grilled chilis, and a garlic finish.
I exhale to recall the savory essence of my homegrown
Salsa Verde, vintage 2013.
A very garden-y year.
