Fresh Salsa and Oklahoma Caviar

One of my family’s favorite snacks is chips and salsa. During the winter we use the mostly canned, quick version called “Oklahoma Caviar”. During the summer when we can use garden tomatoes and jalapeños, the “Fresh Salsa” is weekly treat!

Fresh Salsa

Mix together:

3 large garden tomatoes, peeled and chopped
1 jalapeño, chopped
1/2 Medium white onion, chopped
3 tablespoons cilantro, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 tablespoons lime juice

Serve immediately with tortilla chips. Refrigerate leftovers. Add more jalapeños to increase the heat as you like it!
