real food. real life.
I am so glad I FINALLY made my own salsa. It is so easy and for some reason, I never thought to attempt it! I just kept buying salsa, reading ingredients to make sure there was no sugar. Had I realized how easy it is, I totally could have been saving more money! Oh well, this is thanks to my retired father who keeps trying new recipes at home. He's been making tortilla wraps for a bit now, but the salsa was a new venture and I am so happy he's motivated me to try making a batch. And what I didn't really realize is how versatile salsas can be - I will hopefully get around to trying a fruit salsa this summer, too, to put on top of chicken maybe! Yummy! Anyway, here is my recipe for the above pic. It lasted about a week before we gobbled it up. Paired with some homemade guacamole, I might think I'm back in Mexico with the Salsa/Guacamole huts at every corner of the resort!
Total Time: like 5 minutes? Seriously
3 fresh tomatoes, chopped small, or 1 can of diced tomatoes, drained (no salt added kind)
1 sweet pepper, or combo of a couple different kinds (we used our bag of frozen red/green peppers from our CSA)
1 onion, finely chopped (use a bit of a red, yellow and green, if you have them all!)
1/2 fresh, cooked corn or frozen cooked corn
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 large pinch of oregano, cumin, cilantro
1 small pinch of sea salt/pepper
1 tsp olive oil
Juice of 1 lime (or use a vinegar in place)
What to do:
1) Combine all ingredients. Enjoy! :)
We really cooked these things. From scratch. On weeknights. And we even had time to do the dishes.
They have real, simple ingredients that you'll find in your cupboards. They're healthy and delicious. No lies.

Here's a pic of me and my babies. Just because.
