Summer Salsa

There are some recipes that just work seasonally. Homemade salsa is one of them. This recipe can only be prepared with the finest and freshest tomatoes. Summer salsa has a short season in Ohio and that season starts NOW!

The recipe is simple- you chop everything and allow it to sit and meld together for as long as you can, before dipping chips, making tacos and using up every drop. CJ will drink salsa if it is tasty enough and this batch was worthy of his slurps.

Ripe Tomatoes
Jalapeno or Chili peppers
Red Onion
Fresh Cilantro
Fresh Garlic
Zest plus juice of one lime

I scored these beautiful yellow tomatoes from the farmers' market and added them for a pop of bright color. See kids, when you were younger Mommie made salsa and you ate it with a spoon.
