I love summer time, and I love summer eating! All the fresh fruits and vegetables....YUM! Here is a fresh salsa recipe I got from my friend Jayne. Jayne is just an amazing woman and she gave me some of her salsa the other day and I had to get the recipe. The way I made salsa is real similar, but I just couldn't figure out what was missing. Now I know! Which I guess just gives me peace of mind. But I just had to share her recipe. It rocks!! And if there's one thing I could eat everyday for the rest of my life it's chips and salsa... or mexican food in general. I hope you enjoy it!
4 cups tomatoes (about 8-10)
2 cups green pepper (about 2)
1-2 jalepenos, depending on the heat level you want. removing ribs and seeds makes it milder**
3/4 cup onion
1 head of garlic (not 1 clove...the whole head)
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup white vinegar
1 bunch cilantro
1 tbs cumin
2 tbs brown sugar
Place all ingredients, roughly chopped, in a food processor. Process until desired consistency is reached. I do mine about 30 seconds or less and pulse a few times. If you don't have a food processor, finely chop all your vegetables and mix everything together.
**I reccommend using gloves when working with jalepenos. Even after washing your hands there is residue that is left behind and if you get that in your mouth you'll be burning for hours!
