Salsa, salsa, salsa

I'm always afraid of what it is in salsa and was even more afraid of making it. I've experimented over the year and have some simple ways to make your own.

I always start with the same base.

12 roma tomatoes, removing seeds and dicing into small pieces.
1 white onion, finely diced
12-15 jalapenos, seeds removed and finely chopped
1 bunch of cilantro, finely chopped
3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
juice of 1-2 limes
salt to taste

Once you have the base, you can adjust with your own preferences. If you prefer more tomatoes, onions, japs, etc. add as desired.

Now the fun part.....

Any combo of your favorite salsa-esk veggies and fruits will work.

Cucumbers, remove seeds
Pineapple, chopped or crushed
Various peppers

Have fun and try a new salsa today!
