Fresh Salsa

Tomatoes are ripening in the garden and fresh salsa is always a big hit with my family. I love this recipe because it is hearty and made with all fresh ingredients.
I recommend using a meatier type of tomato like Roma or Amish Paste, but if those aren't available you can let the tomatoes drain. Adjust the amounts of hot peppers to suit your personal taste.


Fresh Salsa

10 medium tomatoes diced
1 medium onion chopped
3 garlic cloves minced
1 large green pepper diced
1 or 2 jalapeno chopped....I use garden salsa peppers
1 green chile chopped
juice of 1/2 or 1 lemon
1 Tbsp salt or to taste
1 Tbsp pepper or to taste
 Combine all ingredients then grab a bag of chips and dive in.
Variations: Add some mangos, peaches, black beans or corn.


  1. Sounds like a great salsa and smart to use up your tomatoes for that.

  2. Hi There, I'm back after a big birthday week. Trying to catch up a little on my blogging.

    Looks so good. I love salsa ---and need to make my own sometime. Don't want it too spicy. Think I would add the corn and black beans. YUM..
