Homemade Salsa

My garden is full of beautiful tomatoes right now. There is nothing like homemade salsa especially if most the ingredients come out of your back yard. 

So fresh and delish!

My recipe:

half an onion
two small jalapeno peppers, remove seeds and ribs for mild, leave seeds and ribs for spicy
two cloves of garlic
juice of half a lemon or lime
I used 5 small tomatoes and 3 large heirlooms (squeeze out juice and chop in large chunks)
salt and pepper to taste
a 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
 a 1/2 tsp cumin
1 tsp. sugar
a bunch of cilantro

I used my Vitamix and blended all the ingredients for just a few seconds. 
Don't blend too much you don't want soup! 

Taste and adjust seasonings. 
I also seeded and chopped one large tomato and added it to the blended salsa for a chunkier texture.

Yummy yumkins!

I still have lots of tomatoes to use! 

What is your favorite tomato recipe?
