I made this up today. It may be spicy for some but just right if you like a bit of a kick and like to use fresh grilled veggies. I used elephant garlic because that's what I had available. I like how this salsa turned out with it. This garlic is milder than it's smaller companion and does not overpower the dip.

I just love this time of year when the farmers are selling their garden on the side of the road. Fresh is the best!
