Make this thick and chunky salsa with fresh tomatoes from your garden. Add more jalapeno peppers if you prefer more heat.

Ingredients

  • 3 tomatoes, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons snipped fresh cilantro
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1 jalapeno chili pepper, seeded and finely chopped*
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime or lemon juice

Directions

  1. In a medium mixing bowl, combine all of the ingredients. Store, covered in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks. If you like, garnish with additional fresh cilantro before serving.

Note

  • * Because the chili peppers contain volatile oils that can burn your skin and eyes, wear plastic gloves when working with them. If your bare hands touch the chili peppers, be sure to wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water.
