Homemade Garden Salsa

As I mentioned in my recent garden update, I have vegetables coming out my ears! When I planted the garden, my plan was to make homemade salsa with all the fresh vegetables from our garden. I had no idea how many batches of salsa I would be making, but the count is currently up to eight. 
Eight batches of salsa, folks! 

With those eight batches of salsa, I have had plenty of time to perfect my recipe.
Today, I decided to share my recipe with you, in case you have vegetables coming out your ears too!

4 tomatoes
1/2 cup red onion
1/2  cup green pepper
2 jalapeno peppers
1 teaspoon garlic
1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1 Tablespoon lime juice
1/2 teaspoon salt
Cilantro and Parsley to taste

***NOTE: I like my salsa pretty spicy so this salsa is pretty hot! If you like yours more mild, I would use only 1 jalapeno pepper and 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes. 

1. Place all ingredients in blender and chop,
2. Depending on the consistency you like, you can also use the puree option. 
3. Enjoy with tortilla chips or your favorite Mexican dish!

  2. Yumm!! I LOVE salsa and I swear I could live off chips and salsa forever. I've never made my own salsa, but my mom always makes some with veggies from her garden, and luckily she makes tons and shares with me. I'll have to get some veggies from her and try your recipe!
