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.

Salsa Ingredients:

  • 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 flavor.

  • 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

Preparation  Directions:

  • 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.
