Fresh Salsa
Fresh Salsa is Pretty Easy

Salsa and chips is one of those snacks that’s fantastic for any occasion. Pretty easy to open a jar, pour out the tomato-y goodness, and pair it with your favorite tortilla chips. On a recent trip to a farmers market, I talked with farmers about how to make Fresh Salsa. I love to make things fresh, especially when the ingredients are in season, to bring a new flavor to my table. It doesn’t take much to make a flavorful Fresh Salsa that will go with just about any dinner, whether as a great appetizer or snack. A quick trip to the garden or maybe the farmers market is all you need.
Fresh Ingredients for Fresh Salsa

The ingredients are pretty simple for delicious Fresh Salsa. You can make it is spicy or mild as you want simply by changing the peppers that you use. I like my salsa mild, but with a little bit of bite, so I use just a single jalapeno to provide warmth without providing a burn to your tongue. Fresh tomatoes make the basis of a good Fresh Salsa. Choose tomatoes that are bright and ripe. Heirloom tomatoes are a good choice for their flavor, but ask at the farmers market what tomatoes they suggest. They will let you know what’s best. To round out the flavor of a good salsa, I add a ripe sweet pepper and a couple of onions. This gives great flavor and body without adding more heat. The fresher the ingredients, the better your Fresh Salsa will be.

1 jalapeno, seeded and chopped

3 small onions, peeled and chopped

1 red pepper, seeded and chopped
