Homemade Salsa

Today my cousin, Olivia, and I experimented with making our own salsa.  This week's CSA box came loaded with all the ingredients we needed.  My oh my.  We put a huge bowl of salsa away in no time.  AWESOME.

Here is our recipe:


3 tomatoes, chopped (we used blanched tomatoes)
1/2 cup finely diced purple onion
1 jalapeno finely diced
2 cloves garlic
salt and pepper to taste
2 teaspoons lime juice


In a medium bowl, stir together tomatoes, onion, peppers, salt, and lime juice. Chill for one hour in the refrigerator before serving.

We didn't chill the salsa but used cold tomatoes.   Too hungry to wait!  Our recipe was adapted from this recipe.  Here is a link to detail the tomato blanching processing.

  1. We blanched the tomatoes before we used them for the salsa. Here is a site that details how to blanch a tomatoe. http://www.ehow.com/how_2282549_blanch-tomatoes.html
