More on Sangrita
My neighbor at the Ferry Plaza farmers market is Happy Girl Kitchens. Todd and his wife Jordan have lots of really unusual and delicious items but I was blown away by his spicy tomato juice. It turns out he makes it by straining his fresh salsa. Now that tomatoes are in full swing and so juicy, your fresh salsa can be sitting in a pool of tomato juice. This makes an excellent sangrita at drink time. I made the above from some glorious tomatoes from Eatwell Farm and cucumbers from from my neighbors at Catalan Farms and even drained, you could still taste the cucumbers. I added a spash of Rio Fuego Very Hot Sauce for good measure. Gosh, but I love summer!
