Fresh Salsa [Mar. 11th, 2007|10:48 am]
Sweet Little Chef
Yesterday I went to Finley Market in downtown Cincinnati. They have a pretty good Farmer's Market on the weekend and I scooped up some good deals on produce. I bought a pineapple (YUM!), tomatoes, garlic, cilantro, onion, limes, and zucchini. While I was there I decided that I wanted to make salsa, so I tried to get as much there as I could. Here's what I did to make the salsa....


10 - 15 plum tomatoes
1 bunch cilantro
1 small onion
5 cloves of garlic
1 Hungarian hot pepper
2 jalapeños
juice from 2 limes
a splash of vinegar

Dice the plum tomatoes, onion, garlic, and peppers. I like dice the peppers really small which helps to distribute the hotness evenly. Put the tomatoes, onion, garlic and peppers in a bowl. Finely chop the cilantro. I uses almost the whole bunch, but I like a lot of cilantro! Add to the bowl with other ingredients. Squeeze the juice from the two limes into the bowl and add a splash of vinegar. Mix well. Serve right away or refrigerate overnight to let the flavors meld better.

This came out just right for my taste in salsa. If I'd have had a food processor, I'd probably have used it to give it a little more juice, but overall I'm happy with how it came out and my family loved it!

Here's a bonus photo of what it looked like after sitting in the fridge overnight. There was a bit more juice in the bottom compared to how much there was at first.
