I first shared my Fresh Salsa recipe a couple of years ago. It is just so delicious. This past weekend, we had our in-town kids and grandkids over for dinner and I made the first batch of the summer. The smell and the taste were perfect for the evening and everyone really chowed down on it. I decided to update this post from 2 years ago in case you missed it! Trust me, you don't want to miss it!
Every year when I bite into a fresh tomato from my garden, after eating the supermarket ones all winter, the deliciousness is almost overwhelming. This year we put in heirloom, non-gmo tomatoes in the hopes that we can harvest our own seeds for next year. At first, we had to battle blossom-end rot. That is pretty much taken care of, but we have also noticed that one of our plants produces nice round tomatoes, and another produces really weird shapes.
But, no matter what, they taste delicious. By the way, the best way to solve the blossom-end rot is to add calcium to your soil!
We were having another family get together a couple of weekends ago and I had enough tomatoes to make some fresh salsa. Man, it is so good! I like making my own salsa because then I can make it to the lack of heat level that my husband and I like yet have a lot of flavor! Here is how I do it:
If you don't have a garden, this salsa is still great with store bought tomatoes! And, it goes fast, so be prepared to make it again and again! I hope you enjoy it!
