Easy Salsa Recipe

  • 1 clove garlic
  • 2 green onions
  • 1 to 3 jalapeno peppers (remove the seeds if you don't want it too hot).
  • 28 oz can chopped tomatoes, drained (reserve 1 Tbsp of the juice)
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice (or squeeze 1/2 a fresh lemon)
  • Optional:  fresh cilantro leaves (depends on the flavour you like.  We add about 6 sprigs)
  • salt and pepper


NOTE:  My kids like making this, but I insist on handling the jalapenos.  You don't want your 3 year old rubbing their eyes with hot pepper juice on their fingers!!

Put first 3 ingredients in a food processor and pulse (or if you don't have a food processor, mince them with a knife)

Add tomatoes, 1 Tbsp of the tomato juice, ! Tbsp fresh lemon, cilantro leaves and salt and pepper to taste.  Pulse LIGHTLY (you don't want soup *grin*)  

Again, if you don't have a food processor. just chop your tomatoes up a bit more than they come in a can and mix all the ingredients together in a bowl.

Put a little sprig of cilantro on top to decorate.

Serve cold with tortillas.
