J’s Awesome Salsa

Here is a basic, nutritious and easy salsa recipe that can be used as the base for other entrées.  Use what you have in the house and add to taste.  For a really fresh taste,add finely chopped fresh cilantro.

When we use canned veggies, we try to buy organic and generally give the vegetables a light rinse to remove the excess salt.

  • 1 can petit diced tomatoes, rinsed (or fresh diced tomatos)
  • 2-3 chopped green onions, white and green parts
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1/2 or whole jalapeño (depending on how hot you like it) or pepper flakes
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 freshly squeezed lime juice (or to taste)
  • Fresh cilantro, chopped
  • Freshly ground pepper and Kosher salt to taste

Mix all ingredients and refrigerate for one hour for best flavor.  Serve with organic tortilla chips.  We like to mix yellow corn and blue corn chips for color.  Enjoy!
