Fresh from the garden

 Don't these look luscious?

 Picked fresh from the garden just a few days ago.

You see, last week while my hubby and I were experiencing cold and snow in the mountains of Wyoming summer was busy making a grand farewell here at home.  The combination of sunny skies and temps climbing into the 80s gave our garden had one last growth spurt.

But what does one do with hundreds of tomatoes?  Why make salsa of course. 

Garden Salsa
1-1/2 lbs tomatoes, diced
1/2 red onion, diced
1  small jalapeno chile, seeded and finely diced
2 tbsp. chopped fresh cilantro
Place all ingredients in a medium bowl. 
From a fresh lime, grate 1/2 tsp. lime peel and squeeze 1 tbsp. juice into the bowl.
Add salt and pepper to taste.

Makes about 3 cups but will only last about two days refrigerated.  Or two hours if you have a bag of tortilla chips and a football game to watch :-)

Good Housekeeping has a video for making the salsa. Check it out.

  4. Thanks for leaving a comment on my Autumn Pear bread reminded me that you blogged, you are so talented! And the most famous blogger I know in real life :)

  5. They do look yummy! Your garden must be in a sheltered area? Or do you cover the plants on cold nights? I'm just wondering, as tomatoes around here (Iowa) have pretty much been done in by frost.
