Fresh Garden Salsa

I stole some tomatoes from my parents garden when they weren't home.
Shhh....don't tell.
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. 


  1. You're mom probably didn't even notice the missing tomatoes! I had plans for dozens of batches of homemade salsa this summer, but my tomato plants have not done very well. I guess a trip to the Farmer's Market is in order!

  2. are sooo going to be grounded! Looks yummy
