I stole some tomatoes from my parents garden when they weren't home.
Oh yeah - my mom reads my blog - busted!
Hi mom - hope you don't mind :)
You see....I was in a salsa kind of mood and I already had the jalapeno peppers from my own container garden and I had the onion (from a previous theft - ha ha) and why pay for tomatoes when your own parents have a million of them. Seriously....they do!
Anyway, I took my stolen goods and made some awesome salsa.
It was so easy - give it a try :)
Fresh Garden Salsa
3 tomatoes, peeled and seeded
1/2 cup onion, diced fine
2 jalapeno peppers, seeded and diced
1/3 cup chopped, fresh cilantro
1 tsp. salt
juice of one lime
Combine all ingredients in a small bowl.
Place in the fridge for at least one hour for the flavors to combine.
Serve with multi-grain tortilla chips - yum!
Note - To easily peel tomatoes, place them in boiling water for about 20-30 seconds and then put them in ice water for a few seconds more. The skin peels right off.
To remove the seeds, cut the tomato in half and give it a little squeeze over the sink.
Then scoop out the rest with a spoon.
