Chunky Homegrown Tomato "Salsa"

Phyllis’ Tomato Salsa

A good salsa is a wonderful thing! This version has both grape tomatoes and Sungold’s from the plants in our backyard. It certainly makes an eye catching and delicious salsa! Terrific on burritos, tacos or as a topping for grilled fish or chicken.   Making your own salsa is simple to do and so worth it!

1 lb. tomatoes, chopped or small dice
1 small onion, minced
1 fresh jalapeno chili, seeded & minced
1 Tbsp. fresh lime juice
2 Tbsp. chopped fresh cilantro
1 clove garlic
1/8 tsp. coarse salt

Place the tomatoes, onion, jalapeno chili, lime juice and cilantro in a medium sized bowl. On a cutting board, mash the garlic with the salt using back and forth motions with the back of a chef’s knife until it is a paste; add the mixture to the tomato mixture and lightly stir in. Cover, set aside (not in the fridge) until ready to serve; up to 1 hour or so.
