Salsa Time

 Let's talk about tomatoes for a sec...

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?

Well DON'T!

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?
Print this recipe!

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
If you want to score bonus points with your salsa, add a bit of chopped mango. Extra Refreshing!

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!
 You can consume right away if you wish, but the flavor get better with time. You should really let it marinade for a few hours before enjoying!
