Atlanta Falcons

Updated: Oct 8, 2023

2023

We just procured tickets to the Falcons at the Cardinals game in a few weeks. My football worlds once again collide! Since I am making dips this year, I decided to do a quick salsa. Enjoy!


Atlanta Falcons Peach Salsa


1 diced peach

1 ear of corn

1/2 finely chopped red onion

Cilantro

A handful of chopped tomatoes

1 chopped serrano pepper

Lime

Salt


Mix all of the top ingredients, mix with lime juice and zest, add a pinch of salt. We served these with Tostinos Habanero Tortilla Chips.

This week we are coming off of an overseas adventure celebrating my very belated (thanks Omicron!) milestone birthday. We were lucky enough to go to Amsterdam and Paris. There is a nine hour difference, so I am still playing catch up; I took the easy route for this week's football salad.


For a Falcons spin on a classic caprese, I used heirloom tomatoes, peaches, mozzerella, basil, and drizzled all with olive oil and balsamic and a little salt and pepper. Delicious with a side of crusty French bread. I needed easy this week, and this fit the bill perfectly.

This week has been a whirlwind. When life gets extra busy, I go for the stress-free cooking route. This was probably the easiest football day food I have ever made.

Falcons fans, we can poke ourselves with the skewers after eating; that'll be less painful than watching this season.

Fresh peach, diced

Mozzarella ball, cubed
