Fresh Tomato Salsa

  • Makes about 4 cups
  • Preparation Time: 15 minutes

INGREDIENTS:

  • 3 large ripe tomatoes, diced small
  • 1 small red onion, peeled and diced small
  • ½ cup chopped cilantro
  • 1 to 2 jalapeño peppers, minced (for less heat, remove the seeds)
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • Salt to taste

Here’s another must-have recipe for using ripe, garden-fresh vegetables. I am not a fan of salsa made with out-of-season tomatoes, so in the off-season, I use my favorite store-bought salsa instead.

Instructions:

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and mix well. Store refrigerated until ready to serve.
