Homemade Salsa

My sister introduced me to this recipe about 8 years ago and now it’s a summer staple in our home. If you’ve never homemade your salsa before – give it a try! It’s fun – the kids love to help with this one!

Homemade Salsa Recipe: (I usually double and triple this recipe when I make it. It goes fast!)

1 Tomato
1 can whole tomato
1/4 onion
1/4 green pepper
3-5 sprigs of cilantro
1 garlic clove (you can substitue garlic powder)
1/4 jalapeno pepper (you can omit this)

Finely chop all of the above (I use a mini-chopper).
Then stir in:
1 tsp. vinegar
1 tsp. lemon juice
1 tsp. lime juice
Dash of salt and pepper.

Refrigerate and serve!

Walk with the King!
