Homemade Salsa

10 fresh tomatoes
2-3 green onions
2-3 cloves of garlic
Handful of cilantro
2 jalapenos, seeded and deveined (unless you want it spicy)
Sea salt and fresh cracked pepper to taste

Clean tomatoes, remove stem, then gently cut an X on the bottom of the tomatoes. Heat a large pot of water until boiling. Add the tomatoes and boil for 10-15 seconds. Remove from water and put into an ice bath. Once the tomatoes have cooled, gently peel off the skin.
Place tomatoes, garlic, green onions, cilantro, jalapenos, sea salt and fresh cracked pepper in a food processor or blender. Puree until thoroughly mixed. Taste and re-season if necessary. Letting it sit in the refrigerator for a few hours lets the flavors combine and makes the salsa taste even better. Enjoy!

The Results:
I loved this salsa. I've never made homemade salsa and this was just so quick and easy and I will definitely be making it again. Loved, loved, loved it Pam from For The Love of Cooking. Thanks for the awesome recipe as usually. Also I put my ingredients in the blender and it worked just fine.

Isn't it so good and easy! It just gets better as it sits in the fridge - if it lasts that long. My daughter LOVES it. Thanks for the shout out and for trying another recipe.
