Fresh Salsa

Posted on Nov 24, 2009 in Food | 0 comments

It’s not really the season for fresh salsa but my mom just gave me I don’t know how many pounds of tomatoes that she harvested from her garden this fall. They needed to be used and I love salsa. I used to make this salsa with jalapeno but the kids don’t like it as much and I prefer to be able to taste all of the other flavours (besides the burn) so I started using a dash of tabasco instead. Some will find that terrible and this salsa too weak. But I love it.

3 or more good sized beefsteak-style tomatoes (fleshy, not too juicy), diced
1/4 small red onion, minced
1 clove garlic
juice from 1 lime
splash of olive oil
splash of red wine vinegar
1/2 clump of cilantro
salt to taste

You can give this a brief whizz in the blender if you like your chunks a little smaller or eat as is.
