What to do with all those tomatoes.....

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 jalapeƱo 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, chopped 
  • Small clove garlic, minced
Everything is tossed into the food processor and pulsed a bit (do not pureƩ)

(Serve with tortilla chips)

 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 about a little Bruschetta?

A little onion, tomato, garlic and parsley or basil....

Toast bagette slices and top with a spoonful for a tasty snack!

What do you do with all of your tomatoes?

  1. Nothing like fresh home-made salsa. My daughter makes wonderful salsa, too. Happy Saturday-xo Diana

  2. It all looks so fresh and tasty. We had homemade salsa at my daughter's for lunch Friday. Her best friend made it just that morning from her own garden veggies. Yum. Love the cute spoon. Blessings, xoxo, Susie

  3. Cute salsa spoon and it all looks great on the MKC charger!

  4. Our tomatoes have been plentiful and so juicy and delicious this year. All of your recipes are some of our favorites as well. Love your pretty presentation and cute salsa spoon! Have a great week.

  5. Awk! I love that spoon! I do need one of those for when I make your recipe because, yes, I have too many tomatoes. Not that I'm complaining. ;-)
