Vegetable Salsa... Fail

So as you all read about already, I got to participate in an amazing Foodbuzz event on saturday!! Read all about it here. Now I also promised you more recipes to go along with said post... here is the first one!!

John and I each cooked our own thing for the event. I decided to go with a super fresh veggie salsa based on roasted veggies! I found the recipe on Whole Living for veggie salsa... It had such promise... roasted eggplant, squash, tomatoes!!! MMMMM so wonderful... The veggies after being roasted and cooled smelled so fragrant and tasted AMAZING... but then came the tumeric... I'd never cooked with it, and I didn't like the way it smelled... but I used it anayway... and the result... a bitter bitter salsa... it was seriously depressing... Thankfully I had my sausage sliders I told you about yestserday as a fall back but this beautiful salsa...


...tasted, as I like to say, moose. What does moose mean you ask... I don't mean it actually tasted like a moose, moose meat is actually rather tasty... When I say moose...well let's just leave it at, it tasted really bad :D

I would make this again minus the tumeric and add a few more spices perhaps... but this recipe can be put under the fail category for sure :)

I'm going to let John write up about his recipe... so depending on when he has a chance to write it up... hopefully you'll hear from him by weeks end :D And as soon as everyone else at the party sends me their recipes I'll post them ASAP!

Here's a picture of some of the party goers! Not sure how I didn't take many pics of the people... must have been too distracted by all the great chow :)

Sorry it didn't turn out! It does look tasty!

Too bad the salsa didn't quite fly. It was worth a try though. Maybe without the tumeric next time.

Oh, sad! How much tumeric was in the recipe? I quite like the flavor of it, but maybe there was too much or this just wasn't a good match. I'm sorry it broke your heart. But yay on the rest of the tasty chow!

so sorry about the fail!! I can definitely say that I've been there :) Also, if it makes you feel better, I don't even know what tumeric is :) But at least everything else was good-- and looks like you had some fun people to share it with!!!

Thanks for all the support guys!! Diva it called for 1 Tbs for a single batch and I doubled the veggies... but I only added 2 tsp of the turmeric in instead of 2 Tbs! Booo to the salsa!

I'm sorry your salsa was moosey!! I guess looks are deceiving 'cause it looks yummy!

What a wonderful event, and such awesome photos of the gorgeous farmer's market! I'm so sorry your salsa didn't turn out the way you'd hoped - it certainly looks delicious! :-)

Is it possible that you just might not like the taste of tumeric? (like I gag and faint with anything containing cilantro) It really is a beautiful salsa!
