Summer Fun with @BlueDiamond Rosemary & Black Pepper Almond Gluten Free Salsa & Burgers, and Berry Almond Shortcake in a Cup #SummerTime #Recipes #Ad

This post is sponsored by Blue Diamond Almonds.

Below are two very easy, and delicious Summer Time recipes for using Almonds.  The first recipe I used Blue Diamond Rosemary & Black Pepper Almonds, Tomatoes, and Peppers from my garden to make a Savory Salsa that is All Natural, and Gluten free.  I used the salsa over top Burgers for a BBQ today. Everyone loved it! Especially my Nephew, and his friends, it was sweet while sneaking in good Protein from the Chopped Almonds. Then for something even sweeter, I made a Berry Almond Shortcake in a Mason Jar Cup, with Blue Diamond Whole Natural Almonds.


1/2 cup Blue Diamond Rosemary & Black Pepper Almonds 
4 Large Ripe Tomatoes
6 Sweet Cherry Tomatoes
2 Sweet Yellow Bell Peppers
1 Sweet Red Bell Pepper
1 cup Red Onions
1 tablespoon Sugar
1 tablespoon Vinegar
1/2 tsp Salt


Dice up the Bell Peppers, and take the seeds out.  Throw in a Blender( I don't have a food possessor so I used a regular Blender to prove you don't need a lot of fancy things.), and Chop more (I like mine chunky so I only Chopped for a few seconds.)  

Put into a bowl.

Dice up the Large tomatoes.  Throw in a Blender, and Chop more. Use a strainer, and put the bigger chunks into the bowl with the Bell Peppers.

Dice up the Cherry Tomatoes, (Leave a few of the Cherry Tomatoes whole, and just cut into half and throw in the Bowl with the other ingredients if you like Chunky.)

Dice up the Red Onions, and Poblanos or whatever other peppers you like.  I chose not to make this one spicy because I wanted all the kids to enjoy it Throw into the Blender to Chop more.  

Throw in the bowl with the rest.

By now the bowl should have the Bell Peppers, Tomatoes, Onions, and Poblanos.

Throw the whole Almonds in the blender, and Finely chop them.  

Add them to the bowl with the other ingredients.

Now add the Sugar, Vinegar, Salt,  Mix, and Serve! The Blue Diamond Rosemary & Black Pepper Almonds have a great tasting seasoning added on to the Almonds already that I didn't have to add a lot of seasoning to the Salsa itself.

I do love me some home made recipes, but opted to do a very simple, and easy Berry Almond Shortcake In A Cup Desert Recipe

Chop Blue Diamond Whole Natural Almonds up in the Blender, and layer it between Shortcake, Strawberries, Blueberries, and Whip cream.  

The cute County Fair Jar Cups I found at Dollar Tree and fell in love with them.
