About Fresh Tomato Salsa

Since I was a little girl, and I'm sure even before I was born, my family has always had a new garden. My mother would always say, " why pay someone for food? You can grow for 1 / 2 the price" |I've always tried to live by that. I do almost all of my canning, and like my mother, I have a garden, although it is nowhere near the scale of hers. I have a love for salsa but never|had taken a liking to the store-bought stuff. The salsa|I make is made from a few simple, fresh items you will find in your garden.

This salsa can be a straightforward, fast snack that takes a few minutes to make. If you like your salsa more on the hot end, you can include more peppers or leave your seeds in. For the more mild salsa, you can use fewer peppers, or for a no-heat salsa, you can leave the hot peppers out and replace them with bell pepper.

Your fresh tomato salsa looks delicious. My favorite thing to but it on is a grilled black bean and cheese open sandwich, a match made in heaven.
