My Favorite Salsa

Trying to snack healthy always encourages me to make salsa. I have made quite a few different kinds, but this is my favorite (so far).  The author, Biddy Talk, says it is more like a pico de gallo, but I don’t care.  I love it. You can chop it all up or give it two pulses per item with a food processor. Don’t forget to adjust the jalapeño for your perfered spice level. 

  • 6 tomatoes
  • 3 jalapenos (warning: hot)
  • 1 medium white onion
  • ½ a medium red onion
  • 1 cup cilantro (I’m a fiend- so a little less if you aren’t)
  • 5 cloves garlic
  • 3 limes juice (I even threw in some of the pulp)
  • 1 tbsp cumin
  • 1 tsp sea salt (More can always be added but not taken away!)
  • 1 tsp chili powder

Optional/Seasonal: I haven’t done this yet

  • 1 cup (2-3 ears) of grilled/pan fried corn. If pan frying it, try putting in 3 tbsps of pineapple juice and 2 tbsp EVOO. Since you are using pans now, I would probably add the garlic, salt, ½ the cilantro, cumin and chili powder now.
  • Sweeten it up with some diced fruit of your choice- pineapple, mango, peach etc.
