Garden Fresh Salsa
When you have a garden that gives you the freshest ingredients to make the finest salsa, I say, heck why not make the most of it! :) The garden truly is on its way out with the chill of Autumn setting in. Nevertheless that chilies are putting out their last produce for the season as are the tomatoes. The cilantro is still going strong although not for much longer, perhaps and the bell peppers are finally making an appearance. So whatchya waiting for? That’s right! Get that salsa made already, will you?!
Chop up some onions and garlic and squeeze some fresh lime juice into the above ingredients and a smidgeon of salt and voila – And what is the secret ingredient? Habanero peppers of course :)
A quarter goes a looooooooong way so be judicious in your use of this dynamite pepper


  • 2- 3 medium sized tomaotes
  • 1 small onion
  • 1/2 cup of fresh cilantro
  • 1/2 habanero
  • 1/2 bell pepper
  • 2cloves of fresh garlic1-
  • 2 tsp of lime/lemon juice
  • salt


Chop all ingredients finely if you do not have a mixer that can make the salsa for youOtherwise, chop roughly and put in your vitamix or magic bullet and let it go until it is blended but retains some textureRefrigerate immediately if you are not using right away

NOTE: this tastes best fresh or made half an hour before use – keep refrigerated for best taste.

Enjoy amigos!
