Fresh Tomato Salsa!

Homemade Salsa

     I asked my coworkers if it was too late in the year to post a Fresh Salsa recipe. They said they all make salsa year round so I am going with this! 

     Actually I do still have garden tomatoes even though we have had some snow in Utah and some freezing temperatures.  When the weatherman gives us the "you better bring in your garden produce" announcement, I collect all the green tomatoes with some of the vines still attached to keep them fresh and bring them in the basement.  I usually have tomatoes ripening there until Thanksgiving day.  Cool huh?  I love how they are so sweet and flavorful don't you? 

     This is just perfect in my estimation.  Tomatoes vary in size and so I start with these amounts and then add small amounts of the seasonings until I like the taste.  The same is true with the Jalapeno.  Start with 1/2 of one and then add more and stir a few times until the heat is like you want it.  Jalapenos are so unpredictable!

Fresh Salsa

6 Medium, Ripe Tomatoes
1/2 Green Bell Pepper, chopped in 1/4 inch pieces
1/4 large Onion, chopped in 1/4 inch pieces
1/3 bunch Cilantro, washed and chopped (about 1/3 to 1/2 cup)
1 teaspoon Garlic Salt
1/2 teaspoon Cumin
1/2 to 1 Jalapeno Pepper (to taste) 

Combine all ingredients and chill for a few hours to let the flavors mingle.  

Be Careful!! This stuff is addicting!

I got this recipe from my friend Debbie Rueckert!  Thanks Debbie!
