Homemade Salsa

This was our first year for a garden, it did better then I could have ever imagined. I had five tomato plants and the amount of produce that is yielding from them is in bucket fulls. So much that I started my search on how to use all of them, so they wouldn't go to waste. This recipe here I have used 6-8 times already in the last three months. I simply love it and it yields several jars, very tasty and all organic material from my garden.

How our trips to the garden are looking twice a week, I estimated over 300$ or more in total produce from the garden this year. That's a huge saving and there is nothing like fresh! 

  1. 3-4 pounds tomatoes, I had a mix of large grape and yellow
  2. 1/2 of a small red onion, peeled
  3. 2 or 3 small jalapeño peppers, depending on heat preference
  4. 1 clove garlic, minced
  5. Large handful of cilantro
  6. 2 splashes of red wine vinegar (about a 1/2 teaspoon)
  7. 1/2 of a lemon or lime, juiced
  8. Salt and pepper to taste
  1. Roughly chop tomatoes, onions, and jalapeño peppers.
  2. Add all ingredients to the food processor.
  3. Pulse until desired consistency.
  4. Serve in a bowl with chips and veggies, or top your favorite Mexican dish.


  1. That looks simply delicious: and agree with you that the's nothing like stuff you've grown yourself. Enjoy - you deserve it!

  2. This looks completely delicious! And tomatoes are so healthy...I try to get Mr. Hausfrau to eat them any chance I get. Making salsa gives me a new idea :)
