Garden Tomato Salsa
Recipe type: Salsa, Sauce
Cuisine: Mexican
  • 1½ pounds ripe summer tomatoes, roughly chopped
  • ½ medium onion, roughly chopped
  • 1-2 jalapeños, roughly chopped (more or less to taste)
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled and roughly chopped
  • 1 small handful roughly chopped cilantro (upper stems are okay)
  • Juice from one lime
  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin
  • salt to taste
  • approximately ¼ cup each chopped onion, jalapeño, and cilantro to stir in at the end
  1. Place the onion, the roughly chopped jalapeño, and the garlic in the bowl of a food processor. Pulse for about 5 seconds. Add the tomatoes, and process until the ingredients are mixed together, but not overly smooth. Add the cilantro, lime juice, cumin, and salt . Pulse a few times to incorporate. Making salsa is a balancing act, so taste, and add more salt, lime juice or cumin if needed.
  2. Transfer to a bowl, and stir in some extra chopped onion jalapeño, and chopped cilantro to add variety to the texture.
  3. This salsa may be refrigerated in a clean, airtight container for 3 to 4 days. To refresh the flavor, add a sprinkling of salt and a splash of lime juice.
