Sunshot Salsa

Raven Higheagle


This recipe is named for Tupelo Honey Cafe's farm north of Ashville. It capitalizes on the plentiful crops of cucumbers and tomatoes harvested in the summer. they use heirloom tomatoes like Cherokee Purple and Brandywine. It's great as a side for salmon and catfish.
