Recipe for Fresh Salsa

Using my goodies from the Farmer's Market, I made some fresh salsa.
I got the basic recipe from simply and tinkered with it a little.
Here is the recipe.

Fresh Salsa:
  • 4-5 medium tomatoes, finely diced
  • 1 green pepper, diced
  • 1 red pepper, diced
  • 1-2 hot peppers (ie jalapeno) stems, ribs, seeds removed
  • 2-3 garlic cloves, diced
  • 1 tsp each of salt and pepper (or to taste)
  • 1 tsp each of oregano and cumin (or to taste)
  • juice from 1 lime
  • 1/4 c fresh cilantro (and basil if desired)
Save the seeds from the jalapenos. These can be used to adjust the "hotness" of your salsa. Mix all of the ingredients together in a bowl. Allow to sit for several hours to let the flavors blend. The best thing is you can omit any of the ingredients or add others as you like. I fried some corn tortillas in some canola oil and sprinkled with seasoned salt to flavor.
