Home-grown Salsa

Summertime is full of many great things... fresh air, beach time, BBQ's and my new favorite, fresh veggies from the garden!  I will say, this whole garden thing is new for me.  My great-grandfather was a superb farmer, but growing up in West-Mobile I didn't really do much farming.  Now, living in small town Virginia... everyone has their own garden!  We have been blessed this season with armfuls of fresh veggies from co-workers and friends and even a few form our own little garden!

Thanks to our fabulous friends Suz and Walt, who filled our veggie basket last week, we decided to give homemade salsa a try. This was our first stab at the recipe - but it turned out delicious!!

Our Spicy Salsa Recipe:

3 large ripe tomatoes, diced
2 large Roma (plum) tomatoes, diced
2 fresh jalapeno peppers, finely diced {we left the seeds in for some extra kick!}
1 green bell pepper, finely chopped
1 stalk of celery, finely diced
1/4 of a large onion
4 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1 clove of garlic, minced
2 teaspoons ground black pepper
*extra garlic salt and pepper to taste!

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and salt to taste. Refrigerate for 45 minutes before serving.
