I inherited a bunch of fresh tomatoes from a few friends of mine and since I am the only one who will eat them sliced or in a salad. I decide to make my own fresh tomato salsa before the tomatoes went bad. I just can not let food go to waste and to throw them away would drive my crazy. The funny thing is that my husband says he does not like tomatoes but he loves salsa. “How can you not like tomatoes but love salsa? LOL!” Anyway, I used this recipe given to me by my good friend Susie. I have to say I think it is the best homemade salsa I have ever had. I wanted to share the recipe with you just in case you also inherited a few tomatoes you needed to do something with.
Susie’s Homemade Salsa Recipe:
3 cups chopped tomatoes
3/4 cup chopped cilantro
1/3 cup chopped red onions
3 tsp. Lime Juice
1 1/2 T chopped Chile’s in Adobo sauce
1 1/2 tsp. ground cumin
2 pinches salt
1 1/2 T sugar
2 cloves garlic minced
My add ins:
1/4 cup yellow onions (I need to use them up.)
1 cup green peppers (I was given these along with the tomatoes and decided to add them to the recipe.)
Mix above ingredients and chill.
