Garden Salsa recipe

Big moment this week, I was able to make salsa entirely from ingredients.  I normally don’t use cherry/grape tomatoes for salsa but my Early Girls are not that early this year and have not quite turned red.

CVG Garden Salsa Recipe
  • 2-3 tomatoes (or 12-15 cherry/grape tomatoes)
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 small onion
  • green onion
  • 5 sprigs of cilantro
  • tablespoon vinegar
  • 1 jalapeno pepper (seeded)
  • sugar

Directions:  Coarsely chop tomatoes (removing seeds, though if I few sneak in it is not a big deal), onion, and green onions and add to bowl.  Finely chop garlic, cilantro, and seeded jalapeno pepper and add to mixture.  Add vinegar to bowl and mix thoroughly.  Let sit for 10 minutes and add sugar until salsa does not have a spicy aftertaste (normally 1-2 teaspoons)  If you like the spice skip the sugar and include seeds from the jalapeno.

    Gosh, you've just reminded me about salsa. I am over-run with tomatoes at the moment – great idea!

    I had never thought about sugar in my salsa. I typically do lime juice and coarse salt. This sounds absolutely delicious!

    Matron, if it wasn't for salsa not sure if I would even grow tomatoes. Glad I saved some tomatoes from the compost.kochsgarden, nothing tastes better either.Red, I would normally use a little lime juice over vinegar though didn't have any. I am not a big salt eater, though could definitely add a half teaspoon of salt if desired.Addition of sugars gives an interesting spicy to sweet transition. And you can keep eating while keeping your mouth cool.
