Summer is just around the corner, and for me, that means lots of outdoor activities and barbecues! One of my family’s favorite things to eat during the summer is our homemade fresh salsa. This salsa is very healthy- lots of veggies, very little added sugar, and no preservatives. It goes great on any Mexican dish, sandwich, hamburger, or if you want to keep it simple, on baked tortilla chips. You may even be tempted to eat it by the spoonful…not that I ever do that…maybe just occasionally haha Enjoy!

  • 8 roma tomatoes
  • 1 fresh jalapeno pepper (if you like your salsa hotter, add some of the seeds or add more jalapeno peppers)
  • 1 fresh anaheim pepper
  • 1 TBSP sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 2 TBSP lime juice
  • Optional: you can add fresh cilantro leaves and/or fresh garlic if you would like

Dice tomatoes and onions. Take out the seeds and ribs in the peppers, and finely dice. Stir together in a bowl. Add sugar, salt, black pepper and lime juice. Stir altogether and cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate over night to let the flavors blend.
