Serves: 4 cups
  • 3 cups Garden Tomatoes, seeded and diced into ¼” pieces
  • ½ cup Finely Chopped Red Onion
  • ½ cup Finely Chopped Green Pepper
  • 1 tablespoon Finely Chopped Jalapeno Pepper
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • ¾ teaspoon Cumin
  • ¼ teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • 2 sprigs Cilantro, chopped
  • 1 sprig Cilantro, garnish
  1. Using a knife slice tomatoes in half and gently squeeze to remove seeds and pulp.
  2. Dice the tomatoes into ¼” pieces and add to a medium sized bowl.
  3. Slice both the Red Onion and Green Pepper in half, remove the papery skin from the onion and the seeds and stem from the green pepper. Finely chop both and add to the bowl.
  4. Next slice the Jalapeno Pepper in half and remove the seeds with a spoon. Finely chop and add to the bowl. Use caution when working with the jalapenos, and wash your hands with soap and water before proceeding.
  5. Add the Salt, Cumin and Garlic Powder to the bowl.
  6. Take 2 sprigs of fresh Cilantro and roughly chop with your knife and add to the bowl.
  7. With a large spoon or spatula mix all the ingredients together.
  8. Cover and place in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
Make 24 hours ahead of time and place in refrigerator to give the flavors a chance to blend together.
Can be stored for up to a week in the refrigerator.
Adjust the amount of jalapeno pepper to 2 tablespoons for a medium heat and to make a hot salsa add either a teaspoon of serrano or ½ teaspoon of habanero pepper.
To make a smooth Salsa you can add to a food processor and process until it is the consistency you like.
