Homemade Salsa....

(let's Salsa)

With tomatoes in abundance at the market.....

....I had a craving for some fresh salsa - and here's how I make it:

  • 2-3 medium sized fresh tomatoes (from 1 lb to 1 1/2 lb), stems removed, chopped
  • 1/4 red onion, chopped
  •  1 jalapeño chile (stems, ribs, seeds removed), less or more to taste, chopped
  • Juice of 1/2 lime
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • few leaves of fresh oregano cut into ribbons
  • Small clove garlic, minced
Everything is tossed into the food processor and pulsed a bit (do not pureé)

(Serve with tortilla chips)

and I serve it in a pretty bowl with an engraved spoon, on a MacKenzie-Childs Flower Market charger!

I have been known to toss fresh salsa on top of angel hair pasta for a quick lunch, add leftover salsa to homemade soup and even add it to a grilled cheese sandwich!!

How do you salsa?

  1. Salsa on a bed of angel hair pasta would be my choice. This looks fresh and healthy for these hot summers. My chef would chow down on your bowl of salsa for sure!

  2. good, so good. I usually buy as many local market varieties as I can find and have one I particularly like, but every now and then a grocery store option surprises me (Newman's is pretty good, tastes more like homemade!). Yours looks so good, and your herb garden is perfect in how you utilize it. And that's pretty too!

  3. Your recipe is a lot like mine. Yes, add leftovers to salad toppings, soup and sauces. Isn’t summer wonderful! Love your presentation.........Happy weekend.

  4. What a cute spoon and the salsa looks delicious!
