As one vendor put it, it’s Tomatopalooza! Tomatoes are taking over the Market – standard hybrids – Big Boy and Early Girl, multi-colored heirlooms in a variety of shapes and sizes – Cherokee Purple,Brandywine or Mr. Stripey, and cherry tomatoes too. They are everywhere! So this week, I think I will post some tomato recipes to enjoy. I’ll start with a basic, easy fresh salsa. It’s simple to make and should keep for a few days in the fridge. Break away from the chips and try it on grilled chicken or a burger.
- 3 ripe tomatoes, seeded and diced
- ½ cup red onion
- 2 jalapeño peppers, seeded and diced fine
- ¼ cup fresh cilantro, chopped
- 1 clove of garlic, minced
- juice of 1 fresh lime
- salt to taste
Combine ingredients and refrigerate for a few hours before serving so that the flavors will combined.
