I made this salsa the other day, and it got my husband and I talking. He said this was the first salsa he learned how to make during his summer in Colorado, 12 years ago. I remember that summer after he came back from Colorado us running all over Madison looking for a Smart Chopper so we could make this salsa. We got boxes of fresh tomatoes from the farmers market and made a ton of this stuff. Might not seem all that strange now, but when you look back to where we were at that time. I was 20, and going to college 2 hours away from where future husband was going to college. I can’t remember what we did with all the salsa, I just remember making it!
Well if we are still making it today, that has to mean it is good, right? It is similar to what you would get at a good Mexican Restaurant. It is fresh, and delicious! Until we moved to Iowa we used to grow everything we needed to make this salsa in our garden.
Garden Fresh Salsa
2 or 3 medium size tomatoes (I like Roma’s)
1/4 med size onion
4 sprigs cilantro
2 cloves garlic
1 tsp garlic salt
2 Tbls lemon juice
Use a food processor to mix everything but the tomatoes. Get it to a nice fine consistency. Add in tomatoes, and pulse a couple times. Leave slightly chunky.
