Yum yum! We’ve been getting wonderful tomatoes and jalapenos from the CSA lately. Here’s an easy, tasty salsa using all local ingredients (unless you need a little lime juice thrown in).
1 large white onion (or two smaller ones)
6-8 cloves garlic
4 ripe red tomatoes
Remove the peels from the onions and garlic, and the tops from the jalapenos. Cut onion into fourths and place into a food processor with the garlic and jalapenos. Pulse a few times to get the onion pieces roughly chopped. Quarter your tomatoes and add to the food processor. Pulse until tomatoes are chopped and thoroughly combined. Be careful not to over-process. Stir in salt to taste (you can add the juice of one lime too at his point if you like). Generally, this is good with cilantro in it as well, if you like that sort of thing. Just add it, leaves not stems, with the tomatoes.
I made two batches like this and froze in 2-cup packages. That way we can enjoy the taste of a summer fiesta in February, when mealy tomatoes rule the grocery store shelves. Do you have a simple salsa recipe you love?
I may add a little cumin and black beans…maybe corn too…I’m a bit obsessed with black beans right now.
I never thought about freezing this type of salsa. Does the consistency come out nice when it thaws?
