Feaston’s Garden Salsa

Tomato season is almost here in our neck of the woods!

For tomato fanatics, such as ourselves, the red globes in the supermarket year round don’t hold a candle to the fresh, sun-warmed fruit you can pluck from the backyard garden. Or pick up at the local farmer’s market, which is what we did.

While this simple salsa would be good on just about anything – plain ol’ chips, burritos, atop a burger or a pile of nachos, we chose to make it the crowning glory of our pork burrito bowls.

Really, extremely, delicious, fun salsa time.

We recommend making this at least an hour before dinner, though the longer it sits, the better it gets. And it couldn’t be easier to make.

You’ll need:

  • four medium-size, ripe tomatoes (we like beefsteak)
  • one jalapeno
  • 1/2 medium onion
  • handful of fresh cilantro
  • garlic powder

Simply dice the tomatoes, mince the jalapeno, chop up the onion and cilantro and combine all ingredients into a bowl. That’s it. You can adjust to make as oniony or spicy as you desire. Personally, we like good hunks of tomato, a little jalapeno kick and a lot of fresh cilantro.

What will you use your salsa for?

So we cruised around the Internet and found some delicious recipes for those looking to use up their fruit.
