Homemade Garden Salsa

Wednesday, May 6, 2015

This year I began volunteering in a garden. I have learned so much about organic gardening, community supported agriculture and growing my own produce. On Tuesday afternoons we teach kids about gardening. Last week, we had an Earth Day celebration which included making our own less spicy garden salsa recipe with veggies we had grown in the garden. It was so fresh and tasty.

Later, I was inspired to make my own spicier restaurant inspired garden salsa. Over the years, I've made and tried many different salsa recipes. This one is good. Of course, it pairs well with tortilla chips but can also be used as a base for enchilada stuffing or vegetarian chili.

This is such an easy lazy salsa recipe, basically you just have to roughly chop the vegetables and then toss everything in the blender. 

Here is how I made my homemade salsa:
