I have been craving homemade salsa this month. Last summer, I helped my friend Marie make salsa, and I fell in love with the taste of flavorful and fresh chunky peppers and tomatoes. She inspired me to try it out on my own.
My salsa experiment started with Meijer. I found all of the ingredients in about a half hour (I was a little distracted by the odd fruits and veggies I had never seen before).
What I used:
3 Roma tomatoes
3 cloves of garlic
Freshly squeezed lime juice
I found a cutting board, a big knife, and I cleared the table for a large work space. Chopping everything into little pieces took
After much chopping and playing with the ingredients, I finally had the perfect tasting salsa.
....after I made the salsa, I realized that guacamole was a must have for our Mexican meal that evening.
It only took a few minutes to whip up the mixture of tomatoes, avocado, garlic, and onion. I was pleased with the final result, and my sister was the biggest fan of both my creations.
Dinner was especially yummy that night, and I was happy to contribute in some small way. I think I will be making this on a regular basis from now on.
I suggest that everyone attempts making their own unique salsa. The best part is, there is no specific recipe you have to follow. Experiment and try something new!
