Awesome Pumpkin Salsa Recipe: Think Beyond Pumpkin Pie With This Fresh Sugar Pumpkin Salsa Recipe by Chef Gigi Gaggero, Host of KSCU 103.3 FM LIVE Food Talk Radio S.F. Bay Area
It’s pumpkin time – and they’re not just for pumpkin pies anymore! Here’s an easy recipe for sugar pumpkin salsa.
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes
- 2 - 3 teaspoons olive oil
- 2 small sugar pumpkins
- 2 organic tomatoes, de-seeded and cut into a small dice
- 1/2 red onion, cut into a small dice
- 1 jalapeno, seeded and finely chopped
- 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
- 1 clove garlic, finely diced
- 1 - 2 limes, zested and juiced
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
Here’s how you make it:
- Carefully cut pumpkins open with a serrated knife. Remove pulp and seeds. Reserve seeds for roasting. (Try this easy roasted pumpkin seeds recipe).
- On a lined baking sheet, lay pumpkins flesh facing up and drizzle with 1 to 2 teaspoons olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Roast in a 400-degree F oven, uncovered, for 15 to 20 minutes depending on size. Poke with a fork to check doneness. (Very slightly undercook to hold shape when diced.) Cool fast to prevent overcooking.
- In a small bowl, combine tomato, red onion, jalapeno, cilantro, garlic, lime juice, cumin and 1 to 1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil. Add cooled diced pumpkin. Toss to coat. Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper and add additional cumin and lime juice if needed. Serve with tortilla chips.
