Homemade Salsa

Bug and I made homemade salsa. We love this salsa and nearly all the ingredients you can grown in a backyard garden and of course the benefits of making your own at home, instead of buying by the jar, are : you know where the ingredients came from, you know what exactly goes in it, no preservatives, and you can make it exactly to your taste. I’m not a fan of salsa in general but I LOVE this!

3 tomatoes
1/2 onion
1 jalapeno pepper
1 bunch cilantro
1 lime (juice to taste)
Garlic salt (to taste)
1. I use a food processor but you may use a blender just as easily. Cut the tomatoes into chunks that your processor can handle. Pulse until they are finely chopped. Pour chopped tomatoes into a separate bowl.
2. Process half of an onion, the jalapeno pepper(seeds removed) and the cilantro. Once these are chopped you may add them to the bowl of tomatoes.
Involve your children in cooking activities; they get to learn about gardening, healthy food, kitchen safety and spending time with you!
Bug is four and loves to cook in the kitchen. **Be sure to practice knife safety and NEVER leave children unattended in the kitchen**
3. Stir all of the chopped items together adding the lime juice and garlic salt to taste. Depending on how spicy you like your salsa you may want to add another pepper or two.
4. Once, you have it all mixed together, voila! You have homemade salsa to enjoy!
Finished salsa.
Better hurry because it doesn’t stick around long!
