This easy homemade salsa is bright, fresh and delicious!
During the spring, summer and fall I find myself buying a lot more fresh veggies in bulk than I normally would during our cold winter months. I think it has something to do with the weather being warmer and I actually start to crave more fresh produce. It's better for us and my waistline thanks me, too! I am a huge sucker for fresh veggies and although I don't have quite the green thumb, I really do enjoy cooking with fresh produce and whipping up easy recipes like this delicious easy homemade salsa. It's bright, fresh and takes only a few ingredients and a few minutes to make. It tastes way better than any store bought brand and it's perfect to use in recipes such as tacos, quesadillas, nachos and more! My husband and I love making this salsa as an appetizer and serving it with blue corn chips. We even like to sneak it out on the front porch while having a cocktail or two after the kids are in bed.
So, let's get started! First, you will want to grab 3-4 medium size ripe tomatoes, 2 small jalapenos, 1 bunch of fresh cilantro, 1 bunch of green onions, a jar of cumin and some garlic salt. Grab a cutting board, large bowl and a sharp paring knife.
Start by slicing your tomatoes, then dicing them into smaller chunks and adding them to your bowl. Next, seed the jalapenos and dice them into smaller pieces. Rinse and pat the cilantro dry with some paper towel. Use the paring knife or a sharp pair of kitchen scissors to snip the ends adding about ¼ cup to the tomato and jalapeno mixture. Rinse the green onions and snip the ends. Dice and add to the salsa. Lastly, add in 1 tablespoon of cumin and 1 teaspoon of garlic salt (to taste). Gently stir all the ingredients together. You can serve immediately or let set in the fridge until ready to serve.
