When I went grocery shopping last week there was a pile of tomatoes still on the stem that looked incredible. They instantly made me want salsa like at the restaurant, where it’s fresh and cool, and just full of flavour. I have never had a jarred salsa that I liked, other than homemade (thanks Mom), but the last thing I felt like doing was busting out the canning supplies.
Friday afternoon we were heading to our Aunt’s for Easter, and I figured no better time to whip up a salsa. And I mean it when I say whip up – this is literally a five minute fresh salsa that you whip up in the food processor. If you don’t have one, you can still just chop everything up by hand. This was a HUGE hit, and the bowl was basically drained. I did a double batch and brought the second one to my Mom’s on Saturday, and it got the same reaction. This is definitely a keeper.
This is also the first post in my #EffortlessApril series. I’ll explain more in a follow-up post this afternoon that I’ll keep pinned to the top of my homepage through the month, with a running list of the recipes I make.
Feel free to use this as a base too. Make it as spicy or mild as you like, and add in anything else that you love (some fresh corn stirred in at the end would be awesome).
