Tomatos! Onions! Peppers!
So yum....
Especially when there are chips involved!

Our little family can put away a jar of salsa a week!
This can add up fast, so I like to make it from scratch whenever I can.

Thankfully our CSA boxes have been filled with peppers and tomatoes as of late. 
Which means I've been in the kitchen chopping up a storm.
 I dont have a set recipe since I try and use only what I have on hand.
But for the most part if you stick to the basics you can't go wrong.

Tomatoes, peppers, onion, salt, pepper, lemon, cilantro and cumin.
Then taste test as you go (that's the best part of the job).

I use my blender on pulse mode. 
In the past we preferred chunky style salsa, more like a Pico de Gallo. 
Now that the kids are eating it they prefer it a little more combined.
If you are in need of a set recipe,
I'll have to send  you over to The Pioneer Woman. 
Her salsa's are amazing and a perfect place to start before going freestyle ;)


  1. Yum, yum, yum. Nothing like homemade salsa...and it's almost gazpacho soup, which is my favorite cold soup. Also loved your pumpkin carving. Brilliant. You get a lot done, girl!

  2. I am a huge fan of salsa, I like it on scrambled eggs. My favorite way to make it is to let it ferment for three days [with whey] and then just keep it in the fridge.

  3. Looks Delicious! I take it you simply refrigerate it? Doesn't look like you are canning...

  4. num num num.
    you look so pretty, too.
