Fast, fresh homemade salsa, yummy!


I have been lucky enough to not need to purchase any vegetables at the store for a few weeks now, the harvests have been bountiful! I have even given two buckets to Aunt PJ, KerryJean and our neighbors Ann and Doug/Jennifer! There are a ton of orange tomatoes just waiting to be picked which I can’t wait for because I made some awesome salsa a week ago and would love to make some more. I ended up with three jars that are now gone. That is one good reason for yellow pear tomatoes, they add a nice color. The beans are doing well too – I love to snap them off and eat them while watering. I hope everyone is having a great summer, it’s been warm here in Long Beach – almost 90˚ today and should be the same for the next few days. Below is an easy salsa recipe for your enjoyment.

Fast Fresh Salsa

  • 2 Med Tomatoes, diced
  • 1/3 Cup Onion, diced
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 3 Tablespoon Cilantro, stems removed and chopped
  • 1/2 Jalapeno, seeded and diced

Salt & pepper to taste if you choose then mix together, cover and refrigerate.

Makes about one cup.

When I make it I do put all the ingredients in a sauce pan and bring to a boil, then let simmer about 15 minutes. This brings all the flavors together nicely and it changes the consistency from thick/chunky to thin/juicy chunky.

Enjoy!
