One of my favorite summer foods is chimol, a recipe I got from my friends Amanda and Fernando. Fernando is from El Salvador, where chimol is a staple. Chimol is made of radishes, tomatoes and cilantro. It is often eaten with meat, but I love it as a fresh salsa. (It tastes great with Carlee's sweet potato burritos.) Chimol tastes just like summer to me, because I made it all the time in the summer when my tomatoes and radishes were in full force. Even if you are not a radish fan (which I am not!), I urge you to try it, you won't be disappointed!
