This time of the year my mother in law's garden is exploding with so many veggies. We had a garden at our last home but since downsizing we haven't had the time to make our own. I always enjoy getting fresh ripe tomatoes and jalapenos from her. I save a few for sandwiches and tacos but the majority of them I use to make a summer salsa.
Homegrown tomatoes taste so much better than store bought..wouldn't you agree?
I use about 10-12 tomatoes
1/2 bunch of cilantro
salt and pepper
I cut all my ingredients into smaller portions and use a chopper to reduce it to smaller pieces. Add salt and pepper to taste and enjoy with some tortilla chips or as a garnish on chicken or fish. YUM! This makes about a jar and a half for me. I would love to can it someday but it just doesn't last that long in our house.
Let the summer grilling, tortilla chip eating begin!
Do you have a recipe that you make every summer?
Have a beautiful sunny week. I will be spending mine on the golf course with my youngest. HOT!
