Texas Caviar

At Seed, I’m known as the gadget guy. If it’s techy and cool–and also useful–I’ve likely got it, or have it on my wish list. Yet when it comes to cooking, a can opener is about as high-tech as I like to get. That’s why this unique salsa is one of my specialties. It’s simple, it’s delicious, and it’s the perfect way to bring a little heat into winter.
