Fresh Salsa


This salsa is a classic in my family. Once the tomatoes start to mature in the garden, it's time for the first fresh salsas of the year. The majority of the tomato harvest will be saved and canned, so salsa can be eaten year round, but I just adore this summery side.

It's super simple to make this salsa, and enjoy it for days to come. If you don't have local, fresh tomatoes, what you can find in your grocery store will do.

Simple Summer Salsa
Balsamic Vinegar
Garlic, chopped
Cilantro
Fresh Tomatoes, diced

Combine ingredients in a non-metal bowl. Set aside for 2 hours to let the flavors mingle, serve with chips, carrot sticks, over salad or quinoa. Enjoy!

What's your favorite salsa? I adore them all! Fruit, tomatillo, canned, fresh, all have a place in my heart! Salsa is definitely my favorite condiment, and can be counted as one of your vegetable servings!

I love them all too! I am intrigued about the balsamic vinegar. I usually put a little EVOO and chopped green chiles in mine! And usually an avocado finds its way in there too.
