Salsa Fresca con Papaloquelite Recipe

Recipe by Antonieta Solorzano Earl’s Organic Purchasing & Logistics Assistant

Papalo from La Granjita Organica in Salinas Valley is an ancient Mexican herb with similar uses as Cilantro. It has been described by some as somewhere between arugula, cilantro and the culinary herb rue(characteristically bitter); others say it tastes like a mixture of nasturtium flowers, lime, and cilantro.  If you are a cilantro aficionado, this is a must! It can be used in soups, stews and salsas. It’s also known as Quilquiña, Yerba Porosa, Killi, Papaloquelite and broadleaf in English.

  • Papaloquelite – Cut into small fine strips
  • Cherokee Purple Heirloom Tomato
  • Jalapeños – Finely minced & deseeded
  • Serrano – finely minced & deseeded
  • Red Onion – finely minced
  • Add Sea Salt to taste
  • Add Black Pepper to taste

Earl’s Organic Buyer’s Notes September 1, 2019

The late season Keitt mango was first introduced into Australia in 1979. Today they are one of the only non-heat treated mango varieties grown organically in California. The egg shaped fruit has a bright green skin and golden-orange flesh. Firm fleshed an California keitt mangos have finally arrived.  The harvest is a few weeks later than last year but the fruit set on the trees looks good and supplies should last through September.
