What do you do when tomatoes from your garden start filling up your kitchen counters and the freezer too? Canning would be a good answer, but I haven’t had much time to do that. What we do, we make salsa instead! These will keep in the refrigerator for a few days, so they come in handy to serve with just about any meal or to use as a dip for chips.
The ingredients are your usual:
Onions, sweet vidalia preferred
Fresh jalapeno or serrano peppers
Lemon or lime
Chop the tomatoes, onions, peppers and cilantro finely or coarsely, depending on your preference. Squeeze the juice from half a lemon or whole lime and season with salt to your taste. Mix well.
With this batch, we took about half of the mixture and blended it then mixed it back in. Depending on our mood sometimes we leave it all chunky, sometimes we blend the whole thing, or do it half and half like this time around.
