Fresh Tomato Salsa!

Hey everyone! I'm pleased to report that it's been just beautiful in Philly the last two days, warm but with very low humidity-Woo Hoo! My tomatoes are coming in and I thought I'd make a quick salsa for burritos.

Just general measurements, there really isn't a right or wrong and add in any extra spices you're fond of.
Salsa
One tomato, about the size of a baseball or 3/4 C chopped
1/4 C (heaping) onion, diced
1/4 C bell pepper, seeded and diced (I used red)
1 jalapeno, seeded and finely diced
1 Tblsp parsley or cilantro, finely chopped
1/2 lemon or lime, squeeze all the juice out
S&P to taste
-Mix, let sit for an hour-enjoy.

Earl says, I'll even help weed the garden to pig out on burritos!
What do you add to your salsa?
Have a happy day:@)

  4. We are still tomatoless in the midwest--sob! Surely we'll have some soon. Your salsa sounds delicious. We love it on tacos and scrambled eggs and lots of other ways as well.

    Best,

  15. Love salsa, especially fresh.
    I hate cilantro (I'm one of the people that taste soap!) so I use parsley.

  21. Use two tomatoes, a whole onion, whole bell pepper, four jalepenos and a can of rotel. Now you have enough for a party!
