Homemade Salsa Recipe

Homemade Salsa Ingredients

A lot of people have asked me for my salsa recipe, so I am going to post it here in the hopes that other people will find it useful.

Salsa Recipe
10 "on the vine" tomatoes
4 Tablespoons lime juice
3 Tablespoons Hot Sauce (I don't recommend Tabasco, something like Frank's is better)
10 green onions
2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. garlic powder
4 cubes of Trader Joe's frozen cilantro cubes or fresh to taste if you have it.
Fresh ground black pepper to taste

1. Seed the tomatoes

2. Put them in the food processor and pulse a few time (or use your blender or chop by hand).

3. Put the chopped tomatoes in a colander over a bowl and let the excess water drain (save the strained tomato juice to put in any sauce or soup you are making).

4. Slice the green onions thin, either by hand or using your 2mm disc on your food processor.

5. Put all of the ingredients in with the drained tomatoes (very top picture) and mix together. You can add any extra hot sauce now if you really want to kick up the spiciness.
