No Recipe Salsa!

I don't know about you, but our garden is beginning to really come alive! Tomatoes and peppers are in a race to out-grow each other! So.... I thought a fresh tomato salsa was in order for a lovely afternoon snack on the patio!
Here is what I had on hand - freshly picked tomatoes, sweet banana peppers, jalapenos, cilantro, lime, salt and (not pictured) half a sweet Walla Walla onion.
This is what the finished salsa looks like!
Add that to a bowl of chips and you have your sunny afternoon snack!

For those of you who would like to know the quantities I used:

Fresh Tomato Salsa

2 medium tomatoes and a handful of yellow cherry tomatoes, chopped
half a sweet Walla Walla onion, chopped
appx 5 Tablespoons fresh Cilantro, chopped
1 small Jalapeno pepper seeded and finely chopped
1 sweet banana pepper seeded and chopped
juice of one lime
appx 1 teaspoon coarse salt

Mix everything together - add or subtract quantities per your taste, let sit in fridge for about 15 minutes or more and serve with your favorite tortilla chips!

What a lovely snack and all from your garden! Great! I've got a bag of windfall apples and pears to do something with at the moment.

Yummy!! I can smell it from here!! Looks so good. Too bad I'm the only one in my home that loves cilantro. I can eat it by itself!

I would love your recipe for sweet zucchini relish-thanks for sharing.

I am really enjoying your trip pictures. We went to Lake Louise in Baniff last year and would love to go back again.
