Pico de Gallo {Fresh Salsa}


We're smack dab in the middle of homegrown tomato season, and I would highly encourage you to make your own salsa. Fresh salsa from fresh tomatoes, fresh jalapenos, fresh onions, fresh garlic, fresh cilantro, and fresh lime juice is on a level of un-paralled awesomeness

So bust out your food processor (or get REALLY good at finely chopping), and eat your heart out! 

Pico de Gallo {Fresh Salsa}
Makes 24 oz (1 jar) 

1 fresh jalapeno, seeded
1/2 red onion
2 cloves garlic, paper removed
1 handful cilantro, large stems removed*
5-6 vine ripened tomatoes
1/2 tsp cumin
juice of 1 lime 

*I have not bought cilantro the past few times I've made this salsa, and it's still delicious!

Combine jalapeno, onion and garlic in the bowl of a food processor. Pulse until finely chopped. Add in cilantro. Pulse. Add tomatoes, cumin, salt, pepper, and lime juice. Pulse until desired consistency is reached. 

Pour into serving bowl or store in a cleaned store-bought-salsa jar.
