Salsa Anyone?

I don’t know about you but I absolutely adore salsa….just about all salsa!  My very favorite is my homemade fresh salsa which I will share with you how I make it today but remember simple is my motto and I don’t follow directions well at all so its kind of a different re-arrangement every time!  I love my cooked salsa that I can up to eat in the middle of the winter and it is made with all fresh unprocessed spices and ingredients and it tastes like summer in a jar.  I love salsa so much that I recently told my nutritionist that corn tortilla chips was the one thing that I would refuse to give up because salsa in my opinion tastes best on a yellow corn tortilla chip there is no better combination!

I love salsa verde, cooked salsa, fresh salsa, and I love all the combinations of salsa’s and chutneys too.  Peach salsa is another fave I made that last year and I love it with a nice piece of tender white fish cooked in a little bit of olive oil.

So the way I make my salsa is just like this I go out to the garden and I collect a variety of tomatoes….some are cherry tomatoes, some are roma, some are these beautiful reddish pinkish orbs I have no idea what variety they are and I try to save my slicing tomatoes for a sandwich for example today we are having Bacon and Tomato sandwiches because my lettuce in my garden has fizzled out and I really do not enjoy lettuce from the grocery store anymore once you have had your own delicious lettuce it is hard to go back to store bought.

I then wash all of the tomatoes and put them in my new food processor the kids and my hunny got me for Mothers Day.  I then add a couple of chunks of red onions, and whatever sweet peppers I have in my garden.  I don’t like a lot of heat in my salsa so if I do add any at all it will be in the form of a half of teaspoon of red pepper flakes.  I then add two cloves of fresh garlic, a tablespoon of fresh olive oil (smell first), some salt and pepper to taste.  I then pulse until it has the desired consistency and then store in the fridge.

Then eat until your hearts content 🙂  Nothing like fresh salsa!

  1. Karen, if you can salsa for later use like in the middle of winter, what else do you do? I would like to see this next step in the process in your blog.

  2. Oh yes, I definitely love salsa, too…and you’re right…it tastes the BEST on a corn tortilla chip 🙂 🙂 Love and hugs from the ocean shores of California, Heather 🙂

  3. Pico de gallo. My favorite salad (chopped rather than salsa) which is tomato, jalepeno, cilantro, onion, and lime juice. I could eat it every day.

    Any tomato salsa makes my mouth water!
