Garden Fresh Salsa
I absolutely love chips and salsa, it’s hands-down my favorite afternoon snack. I’m not a big fan of the premade salsas, I like my tomatoes to be fresh!
I also love my time. It’s valuable and I only have so much of it. This salsa came from a quick-fix idea that I had earlier this spring when I needed to use up a container of grape tomatoes from the store. Since I just love to grow grape tomatoes in the garden (my very favorite use for them is making Sun Dried Tomatoes!), this is a great easy snack that our family can make in the summer too. I hope that your family will enjoy it as much as we do!
One Minute Garden Fresh Salsa
What You Need:
- 1 1/2 to 2 cups fresh grape tomatoes
- 1/2 teaspoon onion powder (can sub for real onions)
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
Start by washing your tomatoes and placing them in your food processor. I use onion powder in this recipe since I can’t tolerate raw onions but if you can you can add a small amount of onion into the food processor as well. I have the Nutri Ninja which has blender and food processor attachments. Pulse the tomatoes for about 10 seconds.
Pour the tomatoes into a small bowl and add in the remaining ingredients. Mix well. Enjoy immediately or let the salsa sit (covered) on the counter for a little while for the flavors to develop.
This recipe makes about 2 servings…depending on how hungry you are! You could also add in your favorite peppers to the food processor to give it a little different flavor. This salsa is very similar to the “restaurant style” salsa served as an appetizer in many popular restaurants. Start to finish, it only takes about a minute or two to make!
