Is there anything better than homemade salsa? I think not.
The other night, my husband and I used some of our Farmers Market Basket stash to make a batch of salsa. It was the first time I’d attempted something like that, and it turned out really well.
First, we chopped the two tomatoes.
And, the onion. I used half of the large onion I got in my basket, but if I was doing it again, I’d probably only use 1/4 of the onion with two tomatoes.
I enlisted the hubby to chop the poblano pepper. I thought it would be spicy, but it really tasted more like a bell pepper. It was good, though.
The last ingredient was the cilantro. Boy, was that good in the salsa. As with the onions, it was a little heavy-tasting. In retrospect, I would have used a little less, but this was my first time working with cilantro, so I didn’t know.
And, the end result:
OH MY GOSH it was SO GOOD! We seriously ate almost all of it. It was a little more time consuming than I thought it would be to chop up all the veggies, but the end results was worth it. Also, it could have used one more tomato. It was a little heavy on the onion, but it’s all trial and error, I guess. The recipe below uses less onion than I did in ours.
- 2 tomatoes
- 1/4 large onion
- 1 poblano pepper
- few springs of cilantro
- few splashes of lime juice
- Chop all ingredients, mix together, enjoy!
