Garden harvest is in full swing. I have been loving going up to my garden and being able to pick fresh tomatoes, peppers, onions, broccoli, zucchini, yellow squash, string beans, carrots, and sugar snap peas. It’s like having your own farmer’s market in your own back yard. One of the best things to make with your fresh garden tomatoes and peppers is a quick fresh salsa. This salsa recipe is chunky and totally fresh. This salsa goes great on our Carne Asada Tacos or eat it plain with tortilla chips. If you are new to gardening, try planting next year a salsa garden. In a very small space you can grow everything you need for your own homemade salsa–tomatoes, jalapeno peppers, cilantro and onions. Give it a try..it’s fun!!
Easy Fresh Salsa
- 6-7 tomatoes, diced small
- 1 c. cilantro
- 2 anaheim peppers or jalapeno peppers, cored, seeded and diced
- 1/2 bell pepper, diced small (I like red or green)
- 2 limes, juiced
- 1/2 white onion, diced
- 1 1/2 T. apple cider vinegar
- 1 t. salt
- 1/2 t. black pepper
- Dice the tomatoes, onion, cilantro and peppers. Place in a bowl. Juice the limes over the bowl and season the salsa with vinegar, salt and pepper to taste. Let the salsa rest in the fridge until ready to serve to let the flavors combine.
