So, I’ve already told you that I have awesome readers. But besides that, I have awesome friends. Two of my friends went and picked tomatoes at Hunsader Farms in Bradenton (you can score 25 lbs of tomatoes for $1.00 right now – read my post HERE). They brought me back somewhere between 10-15 lbs of tomatoes so I’m in the midst of figuring out recipes to use these tomatoes in! Well – I found an Emeril Lagasse recipe for Pico de Gallo and it had my name all over it! It was simple and super healthy. This was the first time I’ve made salsa and I have to say that it was SO easy and this is 100% better than any jarred salsa I’ve purchased! I altered his recipe quite a bit and I also used the food processor to chop up the tomatoes and to make the pico into a salsa. If you would prefer pico de gallo, just use the ingredients below and chop them with a sharp knife into small pieces. Mix together and voila 🙂
Easy Salsa Recipe
2 Large Tomatoes (seeded)
1/4 Large Red Onion
1/2 Jalapeno (remove seeds for less “heat” – I kept the heat in. Give is quite a kick!)
2 Large Cloves Garlic
Juice of 1 Lime
4 T Cilantro
Salt and pepper
Cut all of the ingredients into large chunks.
Place in food processor (if making salsa).
Squeeze juice of Lime into food processor.
Process until you reach the consistency you want. Otherwise – if you want Pico de Gallo, dice all of the ingredients and mix in a bowl.
Serve and enjoy.
