Recipe for Fresh Garden Salsa ~ so simple but tastes amazing

Our garden is in full production and we are eating fresh veggies at almost every meal.  There is nothing that can compare to the flavors of vegetables picked right from your garden. One of our families favorites is Fresh Garden Salsa.  We all love it  (even our daughter that does not like tomatoes eats it up) and we litterally eat gallons of it over the course of a summer.

Matt and I started making fresh salsa together the first year we were married (12 years ago). We did  not use a recipe we just added a little of this and some of that…. sometimes it was really good and other times it was just alright.  A few years ago we finally started to measure and pay attention to what we were adding, and we have now ended up with a recipe we enjoy time after time.

Recipe for Fresh Garden Salsa

In a medium sized bowl combine

  • 4 cups finely chopped tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup minced onion
  • 1/2 chopped cilantro
  • 1 jalapeno minced
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon  fresh ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice

Mix well and enjoy, the flavors will mix and become even better so we like to keep it in the refrigerator a few hours before we eat it.
