Recipes for Easter
Ham, Ham Glazes and other Easter Recipes

I would be interested in knowing what others are serving for their main dish at Easter dinner besides ham or turkey. Also your favorite side dishes for Easter dinner would be appreciated. With the grandkids all soon to be teenagers, this will likely be the last year we do an egg hunt. Thanks in advance for sharing your ideas and recipes.

Yield: 10 cups

6 cloves garlic, peeled
6 Jalapeño peppers, cored, seeded and quartered

3/4 cup medium packed fresh cilantro leaves, to taste
4 pounds ripe, firm tomatoes, cored and cut in eighths
1 tablespoon kosher salt
1-1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
4 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice

Directions: With a Food Processor
Insert the metal blade. With the machine running, drop the garlic and Jalapeño peppers through the small feed tube and process to chop, about 10 seconds. Scrape the work bowl. Add the onion cubes and cilantro leaves to the work bowl; pulse to chop, 8-10 times. Scrape the work bowl. Add the tomatoes; pulse to chop, 10-12 times. Scrape the work bowl. Add the salt, cumin and lime juice; pulse to combine, 5 times. Transfer to a medium bowl and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to allow the flavors to blend. Salsa is best when made the day it is to be served, but will keep for a day or two when refrigerated. Stir if it separates.

Note: Salsa is best made with fresh, ripe summer and early autumn tomatoes. If they are not available, use equal amounts of ripe Italian plum tomatoes and drained, canned Italian plum tomatoes (weigh after draining).
