You know when you leave them in the refrigerator for too long, and they are on their last leg and you are this close to throwing them in the trash?
Instead, chop them up and make them into salsa! Salsa is the easiest thing to make and it is a great way to use that produce you might have just thrown away.
|doesn't it look tasty?|
First you will need some very ripe tomatoes. Any kind will do....they should be slightly soft. I had a red heirloom tomato and half of a yellow heirloom left over.
Now, chop up your tomatoes very finely! They should be very juicy. Important: Save All of the Juice!! The juice will make the salsa the right consistency.
See! Very liquid-y! Put your chopped tomato with juice in a glass bowl.
Finely chop up some fresh garlic (about 2 cloves) and a whole jalepeno pepper!
|Finely chop the garlic and add to bowl|
|Finely dice as well|
|Remove the seeds for the flavor, but less heat|
|It should look like this once chopped|
Do you have everything dumped into the bowl? Good!
Finally, squeeze the juice from half of a lime all over everything. Stir to combine. Don't forget to add some salt! Just a pinch!
|Tada! You made it!|
