Salsa

Tomato season is upon us. It's a little overwhelming with the amount of tomatotes we're getting daily. So needless to say, you'll be seeing several tomato recipes over the next couple of weeks. I haven't found a good salsa recipe yet...until now. This was simple and so fresh. My husband was raving about it tonight.


1 small onion, chopped
2 jalapenos, chopped (seeds can be removed to tone down the heat level)
3 garlic cloves
2 pounds of tomatoes (I used a variety of Early girl and Mr. Stripey heirlooms)
1/2 bunch cilantro
1 lime, juiced
1 Tbsp coarse salt

In a food processor, add the chopped onion, jalapenos and garlic. Pulse until it is minced, do not puree it until it's a paste. Once minced, spoon the mixture into a small bowl. Microwave for 45 seconds. This will bring out the flavors more. Set aside to cool.

Halve or quarter the tomatoes and add them to the food processor. Pulse them until finely chopped. The tomatoes will be very juicy. Pour the tomatoes in a fine mesh sieve, removing most of the juice into an empty bowl.

In a large bowl, combine the onion and tomatotes. Add the chopped cilantro and lime juice. Stir to mix. Add salt to your taste. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
