Tomatoes, peppers, and onion, oh my! There’s nothing more rewarding than growing your own plants from seed, and then turning them into something delicious. That’s exactly what we did recently with this easy, fresh homemade salsa recipe.
Looking for something to do with the excess produce we grew on our mini-plot at First Light Farm in Carnation, I found this easy, fresh homemade salsa recipe on AllRecipes.com. Not exactly knowing what I was doing (which shows just how easy this is), I turned our homegrown vegetables into what Tove called the “freshest salsa I’ve ever had.”
Here’s how you can make your own easy, fresh homemade salsa:
3 cups chopped tomatoes
1/2 cup chopped green bell pepper
1 cup onion, diced
1/4 cup minced fresh cilantro
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
4 teaspoons chopped fresh jalapeno pepper (including seeds)
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
Chop everything up, throw it in a bowl, and mix it up. Done and done. In just 20 minutes or so, your fresh homemade salsa is finished.
I added an extra jalapeno pepper and a yellow pepper just to spice things up.
As advised by the folks on AllRecipes.com, the flavors will meld together the longer you let your fresh homemade salsa sit.
