Fresh Tomato Salsa

We call it Honus's Salsa but it is really a delicious tomato based salsa.

Course: Sauces
Cuisine: Mexican
Servings: 6 cups

Ingredients

  • 6 - 8 large fresh flavorful tomatoes about 6 cups
  • 2 scallions finely minced
  • 1 cup FRESH cilantro chopped, no stems
  • 6 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/4 cup FRESH oregano minced
  • 2 tablespoons Jalapeno pepper minced (more if your taste buds can handle it)
  • 1 red pepper chopped
  • 2 yellow peppers chopped
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons FRESH lime juice
  • Salt and Pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Chop up the tomatoes and mince the scallions. If you can't find scallions, you can substitute fresh onion.
  • Mince the garlic and chop up the oregano.
  • Split the pepper in half and clean out the seeds and membrane and then chop into small pieces.
  • Mince the jalapeno and be careful. You'll want to wash your hands after handling it so not to take a chance of rubbing any in your eyes.
  • Once all the ingredients are prepped, add them to a large bowl and stir gently until well combined.
  • Cover, and refrigerate for at least one hour.
