I LOVE salsa… it goes with almost everything. On top of pasture raised eggs, on salads (made with spinach, black beans, peppers, onions, and heirloom sweet corn) as a dressing, as a dip, add into cooked rice, and top on tacos and burritos! Boom.
I source these tomatoes from a local farm, Abby Lee Farms. They are known for their bomb-ass tomatoes and local organic veggies. I always hit them up and stock up. Since I was travelling this past weekend, I didn’t get to use the tomatoes so it was time to turn them into salsa. I used the 5 large tomatoes and usually use red onion, but was out of it. SO I subbed a delicious sweet yellow onion. Sometimes you just have to work with what you have. So I did.
There is NOTHING like homemade salsa…. nothing. Absolutely. Nothing.
Here is my favorite homemade salsa recipe.
Let’s do this:
5 med – large tomatoes
1/2 cup cilantro
1/4 of large onion
2 cloves of garlic
1 jalapeno (I usually take out most the core and seeds so the kids will eat it)
1/2 red bell pepper
Juice from 2 limes
Salt & Pepper to taste
Place all ingredients into blender or food processor. I have a Vitamix, but I actually prefer to use my Ninja as it doesn’t pulverize it too much. I like it a little chunky, not runny… so mix until your consistency and go with it.
Do you make your own salsa? Please share!
Live Hippily… and keep is spicy, but not too spicy!
