Homemade salsa

Hello friends! It’s been a bit. My dishwasher broke and it’s been hot, hot, hot so I’ve taken a little break from the kitchen. We went to the lake this weekend and I had a ton of tomatoes to use up so I made salsa. This was my first attempt. I got the recipe from a friend and it turned out delicious.

I would recommend Roma tomatoes but really you can use any.

4-5 large tomatoes or 8-10 romas

1 small to medium onion

1 green or orange pepper

1-2 jalapeños

2 cloves garlic

Juice of a lemon

Handful of cilantro


2 pinches of sugar

Roughly chop everything and through in a bowl add salt and pepper plus sugar and lemon juice.

Put in food processor on chop until finely minced but not puréed.

Add more salt as needed.

Strain in a strainer to release some of the liquid if tomatoes are extra juicy.

Let sit over night in frig.
