Still having lots of heirloom tomatoes left I decided to make a quick salsa in my BlendTec. (Yes I have a BlendTec. For those who don’t know why thats fun, see the Will it Blend series.) Anyway, the salsa came out pretty good so I want to share my quick tasty salsa recipe.
6-7 Heirloom tomatoes
2 cloves garlic, peeled
1 small onion, quartered
1 ½ tablespoons olive oil
1 can diced green chilies
1 teaspoon ground cumin
¼ teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro
① Clean and remove stem dimple from the tomatoes an place them in a shallow baking dish. Chop onion into quarters and also place in dish along with peeled garlic cloves. Drizzle with olive oil. Checking often, broil 5-15 minutes or until outside of tomatoes are shriveled and begin to char.
② Once roasted, remove from oven and reserve 2-3 tomaotes. Cool tomatoes (something that I didn’t do, but would recommend).
③ Place the rest of the ingredients into blender or food processor. Coarsely chop vegetables and taste. Add hot sauce, salt, or other flavorings to taste.
④ Chop up remaining tomatoes and stir them into the blended salsa.
Here is the final salsa. It is a very easy and cheap salsa that you can customize to your taste. Also, this makes a lot, so eat up! Add my Fresh Garden Salsa recipe to your planner and use up those extra tomatoes before the end of summer! Enjoy and happy cooking!
