Garden Fresh Salsa

As readers of this blog and my book know, I’m a firm believer in using fresh ingredients. One of the best things about maintaining your own garden, no matter how big or small, is that you can supply yourself with fresh vegetables which taste far better and are healthier than those you can find in the grocery store. I find that having fresh tomatoes in particular can be a great “staple” vegetable for the summer since it can be used to liven up a number of dishes, salads, appetizers, and sauces. With the summer coming to an end, I wanted to share some pictures of some of my own home-grown tomatoes and also provide a nice salsa recipe. It’s a light, refreshing recipe I hope you enjoy.

2 cups chopped tomatoes
1/4 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup chopped bell pepper
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and chopped – optional
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
2 teaspoons lime juice
1/2 teaspoon salt or to taste

In a small non-metallic bowl, combine all ingredients and mix well. Cover and let it sit for about 30 minutes at room temperature or until ready to serve.
