homemade salsa

So a few days ago I posted pictures of my growing garden...and here is a huge reason I love to plant it each year:

One of my favorite things in this world to snack on is homemade salsa. Its easy to make, fresh tasting, and healthy. Enjoy!

2 large tomatoes
1 jalapeno pepper
1/2 c onion
fresh cilantro to taste
a dash of salt, pepper, and sugar
a smidge of lemon juice
I dice everything, starting with the tomatoes. Then I de-seed the jalapenos (be careful not to touch your eyes or mouth during this part!), dice into tiny bits as well. Dice onion and cilantro as well and mix together. Then add salt, pepper, a sprinkle of sugar to cut the acidity, and a splash of lemon juice.
Taste test with the spices to give it the amount of kick you want, I like mine fairly mild, but if you want it to have a spicy punch- add a few drops of tabasco sauce.
Its all personal preference for spicy-ness.
Let it chill and all the flavors will blend perfectly!
