The History behind Dozer Salsa

Several years ago my yellow Labrador Retriever, Dozer, became obsessed with the tomatoes in my garden. He used to snatch any low hanging fruit and run around the yard with the tomato in his mouth in an effort to entice me to chase him. At first, it was just a game to him, but soon he realized that the tomatoes were actually very tasty! At this point, it no longer was a "catch me if you can" game. It turned into a "I'm hungry, so I'll wait here at the garden gate until you feed me more tomatoes" contest. And Dozer doesn't just like my home grown tomatoes. He also likes my peppers and onions. Because Dozer loves the my salsa ingredients so much, I decided to name it after him: Dozer Salsa - Dozer loves it, and I'm sure you will too!

Dozer Salsa - Hot

My best salsa by far! Not for the faint at heart! First place winner in the 2000 and 1998 Westford Pig n' Pepper. Special Award winner, "Hottest of the hot", in the 1998, and "Kept up with professional salsa" in 2000 Westford Pig n' Pepper Fair. Second place winner in the 1997 and 1999 Westford Pig n' Pepper Fair. This spicy concoction contains a home-grown mix of both Thai and Habanero peppers. It should give your taste buds a jolting dose of capsaicin! This batch of salsa, named after my yellow Lab, Dozer, was created with Westford home-grown vegetables. Ingredients include tomatoes, onions, red sweet bell peppers, Thai peppers, Habanero peppers, home-grown basil and oregano, thyme, wine vinegar, parsley, cilantro, a dab of olive oil, garlic, salt, and pepper.

Dozer Salsa - Medium

Named after my Yellow Labrador Retriever, Dozer, this salsa was created with Westford home-grown vegetables.

Dozer Salsa - Mild

First place winner in the 1999 Westford Pig n' Pepper Fair. Third place winner in the 1998 Westford Pig n' Pepper Fair. My Yellow Labrador Retriever, Dozer, is a connoisseur of fine tomatoes. When he smells a ripe tomato in my garden he silently sits in front of the garden gate and won’t leave until I pick a cherry tomato and reward him with a tasty snack! This batch of salsa, named after Dozer, was created with Westford home-grown vegetables. Ingredients include tomatoes, onions, red bell peppers, chili peppers, home-grown basil and oregano, thyme, cilantro, wine vinegar, parsley, a dab of olive oil, garlic, salt, and pepper.
