Quick and Simple Fresh Tomato Salsa

If you have an abundance of tomatoes from your garden as I do right now, here is a quick simple fresh tomato salsa. There are no precise measurements of ingredients here.


Wash the tomatoes, core them, cut into chunks and chop them in your blender or food processor. This only takes a few seconds. Pour into a bowl. Cut half an onion into chunks and chop them also in your blender or food processor. I would use half an onion to 3 or 4 tomatoes as a rule of thumb. Just use your judgement. Add a teaspoon or so of dried basil and about the same amount of dried or fresh parsley (optional) Add a squirt of lemon juice, and if you like a little zing you can add a few chopped jalapeno peppers. Salt to taste. Add a tablespoon or so of olive oil. Stir, cover and chill. Serve with tortilla chips.
