Salsa, Like at the Restaurants

MmmMMMmmm we love this Salsa and can't wait until we have fresh ingredients from our garden to make it!  Because of course it is better that way!  It reminds me of the really good Restaurant Style Salsas, you know those fresh tasting ones with lots of garlic that they can't bring you enough of!  Oh by the way I our garden is coming along wonderfully I can't wait to take you on a little tour!

Restaurant Style Salsa
15-20 Large Tomatoes
1 Large Green Bell Pepper, optional
1-2 Large Jalapenos, seeded
1-2 large onions
4-6 cloves garlic
1 large bunch of Cilantro
Zest of 2 limes
Juice of 2-3 limes
1/2 -1 Tablespoons Real Salt, or to taste

In blender place 2 tomatoes quartered, peppers, 1 onion and the other ingredients.  Pulse in blender until chopped well.  Add the rest of the tomatoes and onion, pulse just until the consistency you like it.  If you like a few bigger chunks dice some of the tomatoes and some onion by hand and add afterwards.  I also like to add a little hand chopped cilantro because I like a strong cilantro flavor.

Did you know you can do a lacto fermented salsa that's full of probiotics? Here's the recipe I used for ours last summer. It was fabulous. Keep the good stuff coming!

Jess, Yep I did! I have made it and make it sometimes. There is a post about it in the salsa and/or friendly flora category. But sometimes when you have fresh ripe tomatoes you want some fresh salsa right now. ;) But yes we love the fermented kind around here too! Thanks for sharing!
