6 ripe tomatoes
1 large chile pepper (anaheim or poblano)
1 large jalapeno or 2 serranos
1/2 onion (I like red onion, but most any variety will work)
1 clove garlic, minced
6 or so sprigs Cilantro, coarsley chopped
Juice of 1/2 lime
Quarter tomatos and onion and put in food processor with chile's, garlic, cilantro and lime juice. Give a couple quick pulses of the food processor until you hit your desired chunkiness. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Leave the seeds in the peppers if you want it hotter, or double the quantity of jalapenos/serranos

no food processer, would a blender work?

That would make a sauce. You will probably want to use a knife and just dice the tomatoe's chiles and onion. I usually leave the skins on, but a lot of people remove the skins and seeds from the tomato's or even the chiles. Your call there. For the tomatoes, I usually get the organic vine ripened ones at the store which are pretty small. If you are using large tomatoes, use only about 2 of them.

I love salsa!

I am crazy for salsa too. In fact, after posting the recipe, I made a batch (used a whole lime). It's sitting in the fridge now ready for dinner. I just wish I had a dehydrator to make some chips. I really miss chips and salsa. I will be making wraps tonight with the salsa and walnut taco meat.

this may have to substitute for my salad dressing.

LOL! I think salsa is a great salad dressing! A bed of greens, a little olive oil and some salsa and what have you got? Greens, tomatoes, peppers, onion, garlic, olive oil and lime juice! Add a few slices of avocado and I am even happier!

does it HAVE to be organic?

I have the same problems here with pepper most of the time. I get organic if I can, otherwise I get the conventional. Works for me I guess. Actually, I will also get the conventional if the organic is way overpriced. Again, that's just me.

salt and pepper are raw?
05-09-2007, 09:31 PM
salt and pepper are raw?
They can be. I use whole peppercorns and grind them as I use them. Celtic sea salt is raw.
