Since garden tomatoes have been plentiful, I've dabbled in a few simple experiments to use them up. From dairy-free bruschetta to homemade spaghetti sauce, I'm feeling quite accomplished as the wife of a gardener this year.
The next thing up was homemade salsa. Surely it couldn't be that hard especially if you're just making a small batch to eat fresh.
So I pulled together this easy recipe that actually turned out wonderful. We ate it to the last drop. It's a very mild salsa and was quite runny...two components that make it kid-friendly as it turns out. I would have added more diced tomatoes after the blender pulsing, but since the kids were digging it as it was pictured, I kept it runny. You know, kids just want their tortilla chips wet. No chunks needed.
DAIRY-FREE SIMPLE SALSA
2 cups of diced tomatoes
1/4 cup of chopped white onion
1/2 cup diced yellow pepper
1-1/2 teaspoons fresh lime juice
3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1 clove minced garlic
Place ingredients in a blender and pulse until chopped and mixed to the consistency of your choice. You may opt to add more diced tomatoes to the mixture after removing it from the blender. Refrigeration over night yields the best taste, but eat right away if desired. Store in refrigerator.
