Dixie’s Fresh Salsa

This is one from the Everyday Paleo cookbook.  We have a couple salsa recipes that we make but I thought that I’d give hers a try.  It has a great flavor and really quick to make. 

6 Roma tomatoes
1 Jalapeno
1/2 red onion
6 garlic cloves
Juice from 1 lemon
1 bunch of cilantro
Sea salt to taste
  1. Place the tomatoes and the jalapeno in a skillet over medium-high heat, turning frequently until the skin of the tomatoes starts to blaken and begin to peel off
  2. While the tomatoes and jalapeno are roasting, put the onion, garlic and cilantro in a food processor or blender and pulse until chopped.
  3. Add the lemon juice, tomatoes(I had to chop mine up a bit), pepper and sea salt and blend until smooth.  You can only use half the jalapeno to make it mild or if you like extra spice then throw in the whole thing.

    MMMM…. LOVE homemade salsa!!! What do you do with it? I obviously love it with chips. Have you tried marinating chicken in salsa??? The acidity in the tomatoes and lemon juice totally tenderizes the chicken. I leave the chicken to marinate overnight and then grill it the next day. SO good! Or you can just bake the chicken in the oven with the salsa.

      I have it on everything! Haha, I put it as a dressing over a spinach and tuna salad yesterday, have it on my eggs in the morning and used it as a dip for my chicken last night. I think I remember you telling me you did that. That sounds so good I will for sure try that next week for a dinner! That sounds so good! Thanks Heather!
