Homemade Summer Salsa

When I lived in San Antonio, there was no shortage of good salsa. Every restaurant claimed to have the best. But it wasn't until I tried my neighbor's salsa did I finally agree with the claim. Even now, working for a grocery store, nothing can beat the taste of fresh, homemade salsa made with sweet tomatoes that you cut yourself.

I was lucky enough to get the recipe from my neighbor and now, 15 years later I still make this salsa and it is one of only a few recipes that my husband regularly requests. Next week is the 4th of July and so I share this recipe with you so you can wow your friends and family. The best part is, it is gluten free, dairy free, soy free, nut free, vegan, raw, no MSG and no sugar.

Recipe:
4 large tomatoes or 6 smaller tomatoes
4-5 green onions
1-4 oz can of olives
1-4 oz can of green chilies (or fresh)
1 1/2 tablespoon olive oil
1 1/2 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
salt and pepper to taste


Ingredients: tomatoes, green onions, canned olives,
canned chilies, olive oil, apple cider vinegar, salt and pepper


Step 1: Chop the tomatoes and green onions


Step 2: Combine the chopped tomatoes and green onions with the canned olives and green chilies






Step 3: Add the olive oil and apple cider vinegar. Season with salt and pepper.



Step 4: Serve up with your favorite chips.



Tip: the salsa tastes better the second day, after all the flavors have marinated.
