Homemade Fresh Salsa

My generous older brother and sister-in-law let Bogdan and me pick as many tomatoes and peppers as we wanted from their garden! (Since they had a baby recently, I think they have had a few other things on their minds! ;))

We were very thrilled about this fresh produce, and one of the first things I made was salsa!

Fresh Salsa

(Please keep in mind that these measurements are approximate!)

3-4 cups diced tomatoes

2 teaspoons diced fresh cilantro

2 teaspoons diced green onion (or regular sweet onion)

granulated garlic (or 1 clove fresh garlic, minced)

1/2-3/4 teaspoon salt

1/2-3/4 teaspoon sugar

2 teaspoons lemon juice

1 jalapeno, minced (more or less, depending on how hot you like your salsa!)

When I made this, I let it sit on the counter all afternoon, and it was even better in the evening.

I'm Bonnie. I'm a pharmacy technician and new wife to Bogdan. I love cooking, usually without recipes. I love good sales and coupons, but haven't quite figured out the best way to find them. I make the typical new-wife mistakes and have burned my share of cookies. I like a cold house and a hot shower all year long.

    I actually wanted to make fresh salsa this weekend- thanks for the recipe! I may dice the tomatoes even smaller, though, because for some reason I love ketchup/salsa/pasta sauce but don’t like raw tomatoes!

    Salsa left to sit for days in the refrigerator is the bomb! This looks pretty amazing!

    Looks yummy. Nothing better than picking your own tomatoes or veggies. πŸ˜‰
