Fresh, gorgeous tomatoes have been taking over the farmer’s market the last few weeks. I feel like every Saturday, they’re on extra super sale since there are so many beautiful tomatoes that no one wants to go to waste. It’s been heaven. So we gather up as many as we can use in a week, and we’ve been making a few batches of fresh salsa.
This is a mild, gentle, fresh introduction to salsa. The fresh flavors taste like pico de gallo and the fairly smooth texture is great for kids who don’t like large pieces in their salsa. We put it on anything–taco salad, grilled chicken, chips, my morning eggs…I could go on.
If you prefer a bit of kick, feel free to add some green chiles or jalapeño to taste. I think each salsa has its merits and this one has awesome fresh flavor rather than lots of heat. It’s delicious!
- 2 cups fresh tomatoes, halved or quartered

- Serve on anything!
