Fresh Garden Salsa

I couldn't wait until my tomatoes ripened
so I could make some fresh salsa.

Before you try this recipe
you have to realize this is a totally
different taste than canned salsa.

Like I've said before, simple
recipes are sometimes the best.
You need to be able to taste 
the fresh veggies, so I let their natural
flavor come out by keeping it simple.

 My garden find for the evening. Not sure what I'm going to
do with all those peppers. Maybe make relish.

Chop the banana pepper really fine to spread the heat.

Fresh Garden Salsa

1/2 cup fresh corn
1 1/2 cups fresh tomato, diced
1/3 cup onion, diced
1 banana pepper, chopped fine (Jalapenos if you like heat)
1/2 green pepper, diced
1 Tbsp. lemon juice (lime is good too)
1/4 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper
1/4 tsp. sugar
1/2 tsp. parsley flakes,
(fresh if yours didn't die like mine)

Chop away and mix together. Chill in refrigerator
1 hour before serving.

This recipe should serve four. I had the small bowl of salsa in the
photo and my husband came home and ate the rest.
I kept asking if he wanted to save it for lunch
and he said, "yea" but that never happened.
Just thought I'd add a testimonial.
