Fresh Garden Salsa

thehouseonsilverado
A delicious salsa that uses fresh tomatoes and comes together in only a few minutes!

Ingredients
  

  • 10 fresh garden tomatoes give or take, depending on the size of your tomatoes
  • cup onion diced (and sauteéd if you choose)
  • 1 jalapeño pepper diced, seeds removed
  • 4 mini sweet peppers diced
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • ¾ tsp sugar
  • ½ tsp salt
  • juice from one lime
  • ½ cup fresh cilantro or more if you love cilantro like we do!

Instructions
 

  • Rinse and dry the tomatoes. Slice the ends off and cut in half.
  • Squeeze the tomato, using your hands, into a bowl to remove juice and seeds.
  • Place the tomatoes in a large food processor with all remaining ingredients, except cilantro.
  • Pulse 4-6 times until the tomatoes reach a thick and chunky consistency.
  • Add the cilantro, and pulse a few more times until well combined, but still chunky.
  • You can serve immediately, but allowing it to chill in the fridge for an hour or so lets the flavors combine even more.

Notes

  1. If you want more spice, leave the seeds and ribs in your jalapeño pepper.
  2. If you don't like the strong taste of raw onion, you can sautée the onions before adding them to the salsa.  This gives you a more mellow onion flavor.
