Fresh Salsa!

At this time of the year, when tomatoes are ripe and juicy and plentiful, why not make your fresh Mexican salsa, in a jiffy, to go as a dressing on your tacoes, your chile con carne, your taco salad, as a dip for your chips.

For six servings:
six roma tomatoes, chopped
five green onions, chopped
1/2 bunch of cilantro, stemmed and chopped
juice of half a lime
a green chile, or jalapeno, roasted and chopped fine
salt and pepper to taste

Toss everything and let it rest on the counter while you dish out the chips, and prepare the margarita!

Go on, give it a whirl.  Nothing you buy will taste this fresh.
I can eat the whole thing all by myself.
Pass the chips and margarita.


  1. I definitely want to try this! Thanks for sharing!

  2. I make salsa all of the time and people think it is such a special treat. After you have tasted fresh, it is hard to go back to buying it in the store. The margarita really brings out the flavor!

  3. You had told me about this salsa before, but actually seeing it, really makes me want to try it! Thanks for sharing!

  4. I am passionate about fresh salsa. I tried it with my mom's sun gold tomatoes this summer and it was superb!

  5. That looks really tempting. I'll give it a go as a topping for baked potatoes!

  6. Mise, never tried that one, but it sounds splendid!
