Our family loves salsa (yes, even our 2 and 3-year-olds). The kids are also crazy about tomatoes. But somehow once the tomatoes ripen and go in the crisper drawer, I very often forget about them. So, while we have a pretty good cooked Salsa Recipe that we like, I’ve been looking for a great, simple, raw salsa recipe that I can throw together quickly when I discover tomatoes in the back of that crisper drawer. I think I finally found a great one on Pinterest. It takes about 5 minutes to make and I almost always have all the ingredients on-hand. I used fresh tomatoes, of course, since that was the whole reason I was looking for the recipe, but the original uses canned. I think using canned tomatoes will be great in the Winter when I’m not getting yummy tomatoes in my CSA box.
