**Thank you to my husband for always growing a beautiful, bountiful garden for our family to enjoy. Tomatoes straight off the vine, are a little slice of heaven on earth for me! This year I was able to make salsa with our fresh garden tomatoes, onions, cilantro, corn, and jalapenos.
10 medium tomatoes
1 bunch cilantro
1 large onion
1 large Anaheim pepper
2 large jalapenos
Lemon juice from 2 lemons or one of those plastic lemons
1/4 cup White vinegar
salt to taste
1 can sweet corn or 2 large corn on the cobs
1 can black beans
1 large Mango, cubed
small food processor
Chop onions in food processor until small. Place onions in bowl and cover with squeezed lemon juice. Add white vinegar to the bowl. (It's best if you let this concoction sit overnight to give the onions ample time to absorb the juice, but I rarely do that. Mostly because I can't wait that long to eat my salsa!!)
Next remove seeds from jalapenos then chop jalapenos, cilantro, and pepper in food processor. Place them in the bowl with the onions.
Last, blend tomatoes in the blender until pureed. Pour them into the bowl and mix everything together until all blended and colorful.
Add salt to taste.
**Feel free to add extras like corn kernels, black beans or chopped mango! MMmmmmm!
*Note on tomatoes: I've tried boiling and peeling the tomato skins off and I've tried just leaving them on. I honestly can't tell the difference. They both taste good to me, so I guess do whatever works!
With tortilla chips, over tacos, inside burritos, in a salad, with chicken, etc, etc! Until you die!
