So, rolling with the tomato theme – the other way my husband will eat fresh tomatoes! You knew this was coming, didn’t you?
I’m loving this version because we have tomatoes, onions and hot peppers in the garden currently – so I can walk out the back door and grab the ingredients whenever I want and mix this up in about ten minutes.
I’m going to miss the garden when the season is over!
Garden Fresh Salsa
(slightly adapted from About.com)
Makes about 2 cups
4 Roma tomatoes
1/2 small onion
1 hot pepper (I used a Serrano pepper)
2 cloves of garlic
1-2 Tbsp. lime juice
1 tsp. sugar
Salt and pepper, to taste
In a food processor, pulse one of the tomatoes, onion, hot pepper and garlic until finely chopped but still chunky. Transfer to a bowl.
Dice remaining tomatoes. Stir into the processed mixture. Stir in lime juice and sugar and season to taste with salt and pepper. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
