Riddle: What do you get when you cross tomatoes with onions, peppers, cilantro and lime juice, topped off with bits of cucumber? That’s right…
Answer: Late Summer Salsa
Late summer always brings us an abundance of salsa ingredients. We love salsa so much that many times we’ll just have corn tortilla chips and salsa as our lunch.
Salsa is so simple and inexpensive to make.
12 Roma Tomatoes, diced
3 Jalapenos, seeded (use more or fewer seeding depending on the heat you want)
1 small cucumber, diced
1 onion, diced
1 avocado, diced
Juice of one lime
1 tsp of sea salt
Cilantro, to taste
Slice, dice and blend. I like this salsa best if it is cooled first, which usually takes about two hours. It’s fresh, it’s raw, and you can grow the majority of the ingredients yourself.
What unique ingredients do you put in your salsa? Do you cook your salsa, or go raw?
