Fresh Salsa


While weeding and plucking some fresh veggies the other day, I had a handful of yellow tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, an Anaheim pepper and an onion. Hmmmm, how about a fresh salsa for Dude's lunch?

This has to be the most simple thing to throw together. And I made it up as I went. I have a recipe I use in the winter for canned ingredients, so I used the same premise to make the fresh version.

Fresh Salsa
1 yellow tomato
5 cherry tomatoes
1 pepper, your choice
1 small onion (pearl onion sized)
olive oil
fresh lemon juice

Dice up the yellow tomato. Slice the cherry tomatoes in half. Seed and dice the pepper. Dice onion into small pieces. Place all ingredients in a small bowl. Drizzle about 1 to 2 TBSP olive oil over top. Squeeze half a lemon over the top. Toss with your fingers. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for a couple of hours.

I made a small amount just for Dude to take to work with him. He ate it as a salad with his steak. He said it was mild and refreshing; not hot like the normal salsa I make.

After a day of no sleep after working last night, I'm on my way to be to watch "House Hunters" and go to sleep. Need to find a cheesecake recipe I can make in a cake pan for work. I had a request........

This looks so pretty. I make something very similar with manogoes, lime, honey, etc/ Salsa are so wonderful because you can make them so many ways. I love this one!!
