Homemade Salsa

The tomatoes in our garden are finally starting to ripen!  I used the vegetables from our garden to make a delicious fresh salsa.  So good in fact, we ate the entire huge bowl in one evening.  I loved dipping cucumbers in it (we still have SO many cucumbers, I’m eating them as fast as I can!), and of course, organic corn tortilla chips.

I will be making this salsa over and over while I can get fresh vegetables.  It is so much better than jarred salsa, you can’t even compare the two.


  • 4 tomatoes, diced
  • 1 bell pepper, diced
  • 1 yellow onion, diced
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, finely diced, seeds and ribs removed
  • 2 handfuls cilantro, chopped
  • Juice of 1 lemon (or lime)
  • Sea salt to taste
  • Freshly ground black pepper

Mix all ingredients in a large bowl.  Then try to keep from finishing the whole bowl!
