I’m not precise w/salsa, but here’s what I throw in:

Ingredients:

  • Tomatoes
  • Assorted peppers (1-2 hot ones to jack it up a little)
  • Onion (purple is beautiful)
  • Basil and assorted other herbs (parsley, cilantro, marjoram, whatever is on hand)
  • Juice of 1-2 lemons or limes
  •  A li’l salt 
  • Garlic–several cloves, peeled 

Instructions:

  1. Dice one large tomato, onion and largest peppers and set aside
  2. Blend all remaining ingredients in a blender
  3. Combine chopped and blended ingredients and season to taste
  4. Bam!  Salsa!

Tips:

Great for topping omelets, added to bean soup during cooking or after, and even as a salad dressing.  Great as a snack with chips–try adding some guac or hummus to balance it.

This is a great way to use abundant cherry tomatoes!
