Making Salsa frugally
I got this great salsa recipe from Andrea over at From the Bookshelf. My son can not get enough of this salsa. It is fabulous, fresh, and tasty. The price of cherry/grape tomatoes…yuck (not so fabulous), so I decided to try a different tomato.
I bought 8 Roma tomatoes at ALDI for about $1.09, far less than the $2.50 the grape tomatoes cost. I washed and cut them (in half, and then in quarters, then chopped them in a large chunk style.
Here how I’m making my salsa, inspired by Andrea’s recipe and made a bit more frugally.
8 Roma tomatoes (chopped, large and chunky)
1 onion (small) cut into pieces
3 TBSP lime juice
1 TBSP diced garlic (I used the type in the jar) If you use fresh, use 2 cloves.
1 tsp cilantro
a pinch of salt
a pinch of pepper
1 TBSP diced jalapeno (I used a jarred variety, the mild version for just a little spice)
