Garden Fresh Salsa

Jenni K


This is such a bright & fresh tasting salsa. There's rarely leftovers when I bring it to get togethers. If there's extra, it's because this makes such a big batch! This is very easy to alter to your own tastes, as well.

    juice from 1 lemon

How to Make Garden Fresh Salsa


  1. Chop up all tomatoes, peppers, and the onion and combine in a large bowl. Drain jalepenos (if you're using the green chiles, no need to drain them) and add to bowl.
  2. Roll the lemon & lime on the counter, pressing it with your hand before cutting them in half (you'll get more juice this way). Either use a juicer, or squeeze the juice into your hand to catch any seeds. Add salt and mix well. Chill in the fridge at least 2 hours for flavors to combine well. I usually let it chill overnight.
  3. Serve with chips (the Scoops tortilla chips work well), or use on anything you put salsa on. I've put in on baked potatoes, on chicken before baking, etc... use your imagination!
