There are lots of great things about having a garden, like getting harvest the produce you have worked so hard to grow.
The weeding…not so much.
Anyway, I will save the topic of weeds for another day.
A few years ago I decided to try making some fresh salsa with a few tomatoes, a green pepper, and an onion that I had just picked from my garden.
I basically threw them into my food processor and that was it. I loved it and I have been making my 3-ingredient salsa ever since.
What’s not to love about something that includes only foods you grew yourself, is healthy, and tastes good, right?
Even if you don’t have a garden, you can make this simple salsa from produce you have purchased.
If you want to add a little more of a kick you can add some fresh cilantro or maybe even a little bit of a jalapeño pepper.
I like to use my food processor and just pulse the ingredients for a little until they are the desired consistency. However, you can use a knife if you prefer.
My favorite tomatoes to use for salsa are Roma tomatoes because they aren’t overly juicy.
However, if you don’t have any Roma tomatoes you can use any tomato you have on hand. Just know that your salsa will be juicy. You can always strain your salsa in a sieve or colander if it is too juicy.
- 2-3 Roma Tomatoes
- 1 Green Pepper
- 1 Small Onion
- Remove the stems from the tomatoes and either dice or place into a food processor.
- Remove the stem and seeds from the green pepper and either dice or place into a food processor.
- Remove the outer layer from the onion and either dice or place into a food processor.
- If using a food processor, pulse the tomatoes, green pepper, and onion until they are the desired consistency.
- Chill or eat immediately.
I used a very small white onion for this recipe. If you don't have a really small onion just use ⅓ to ½ of an onion. While I used a white onion you can use any type of onion you prefer.
You can even add a little cilantro or a little jalapeño pepper to give this salsa a little kick.
I usually eat this garden fresh salsa with tortilla chips, but I would love to branch out. What do you eat with salsa?
