Fresh salsa is so easy to make and makes great use of summer produce – especially tomatoes! And it tastes so much better than supermarket jarred salsa.
In keeping with the whole tomato theme right now, I decided to make fresh salsa this weekend. If you’re looking for ways to use up your tomatoes, salsa is one of the easiest things you can make. And from experience, I’ve discovered that it disappears very quickly!
The recipe I made was given to me last week by my friend Michelle. She loved the addition of avocado to the salsa so I thought I’d give it a try. When I got the recipe, it was identical to the one I usually make except it excluded salt and pepper and added avocado and used a touch more lime juice. Whenever I make a new recipe for the first time I follow it to the letter so that’s what I did.
Here’s what you’ll need:
Serve up this fresh and tasty salsa with some easy homemade guacamole and take your nacho night to a new level!
- 5-6 tomatoes
- 2-3 avocados
- 1 red onion
- 2 small limes
- ½ cup chopped cilantro
- 1-2 cloves of garlic
- ½ powdered cumin or curry
- salt and pepper to taste
- chop the tomato, avocado, onion, cilantro and mix together in a medium sized bowl
- crush the garlic and add
- squeeze the lime into the mix
- add the spices
- chill for an hour in the fridge
Serve it up with nachos, sour cream and a few coronas or use it to make a cold pasta salad, a side with potatoes or even rice or pork. It's so easy and quick to make and gets eaten so quickly that you'll have no trouble using up all those tomaotes!
