Fresh Summer Salsa

After receiving a fabulous gift of ripe tomatoes from my friend’s garden, I decided to make  fresh homemade salsa!  My recipe is simple, quick, and delicious…and a MUST for any get together this Summer.


-Three small ripe tomatoes

-1/4 large white onion

-One small jalapeño

-Two small banana peppers

-1/2 green pepper

-Three small cloves of garlic

-handful of cilantro

-Juice of 1/2 lime

-Salt, Pepper, Cumin to taste

Roughly chop up all vegetables and place in food processor.  Add salt, pepper, cumin, lime juice and cilantro and mix on low to get desired chunkiness.  If you like your salsa with a little kick, do not remove seeds from jalapeños, or use a spicier pepper like a habanero.  You can really just add in any fresh ingredient that you want to make it YOUR own recipe.  Serve chilled or at room temperature with tortilla chips.  Enjoy!

      Thanks so much…I hope you do! Just a note…it is really a mild salsa, so add more heat if you like it medium to hot!
