Tim's Fresh Homemade Garden Salsa Recipe
Here's a homemade salsa recipe that uses a number of garden goodies, and
is easy to make. You can vary the "heat" of the salsa by the amount of Jalapeno
peppers you use, Or, use a hotter pepper for a hotter homemade salsa. This
recipe does not cook the salsa.
3-4 Green Peppers (You can sub yellow, red or orange for more color)
1-2 Jalapenos (This is where you get your spice from. If you want a hotter
salsa, use a habanero)
2 Vidalia Onions
3 Tomatoes (Use plum rather than beefsteak so the salsa is not too juicy.
You can also substitute tomatillos as they tend to be not very juicy.)
1 bunch of cilantro * Don't use the whole bunch, unless you want a stronger
Vinegar (Maybe a half cup. Not too much because it will get too juicy.)
Hot Sauce- A half cup. This will give it some more flavor, and add a little
kick to it. Don't add too much again because you don't want it soupy.)
Optional Items: Corn, black beans, pineapple
Chop peppers, onions, tomatoes, jalapenos and cilantro. Do it manually rather
than with an electronic chopper. The chopped pieces should be about the size
of a corn kernel.
Mix all of the ingredient together in a large bowl.
Now it's ready to eat!
*It may take you a couple of tries before you get it perfect. You can add
or subtract ingredients as you see fit.
Important Note: Do not cook any of the salsa ingredients. Eat
salsa immediately, and refrigerate what's left.
