I love making fresh salsa!
This is great served with chips, taco's I made a batch this evening to serve with my Huevos Rancheros!
This salsa is a snap to make if you purchase that handy dandy chopper I was talking about in an earlier post. You can see by the photo everything is evenly chopped. I slice my tomatoes and then pop the sliced into the chopper and press. Instant fine dice! NO BULL, this is the best tool ever! You can make this as spicy as you wish, you can make as much as you like. The longer this sits the better it gets. During the summer we have even made salsa dogs on the grill. This is a great salsa that can be added to many dishes.


6 Tomatoes, I usually purchase Roma tomatoes for this.
1 small red onion
1 green pepper
1 red pepper
1 fresh jalapeno chopped/ can add more if you like it spicy!
juice of 1 lime
2 cloves of minced garlic
cilantro to taste
salt and pepper
1 tsp garlic salt

Dice all of the above into small bits, season and taste. I like mine spicy, so I taste then decide if I want more jalapeno peppers.

    This salsa was so fresh and flavorful. I substituted a yellow pepper for the red pepper. I will definately keep this in my recipe file for salsas and make again. My family gave this salsa a 9 1/2 out of 10...
    I've cooked/tasted this recipe!
    This is a variation

      Really close to the one I have been making for years, didn't even think to add red and green peppers going to try that.
