Kathy's Salsa Fresca

Courtesy of Kathy This is our absolute favorite 'fresh' salsa recipe. I plant 6 Roma tomato plants each year, so we eat this almost every day!


8-10 Roma tomatoes, seeded, if you wish, and coarsely chopped
1 fresh jalapeno, seeded, unless you want it HOT
1 large, sweet onion finely chopped
1 tbs dry, or 4 tbs fresh cilantro
1 tsp cumin
Dash of salt
Cracked black pepper
2 tbs lime juice
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil


Combine tomatoes, jalapeno and onion in a bowl, sprinkle with salt and let set for 10 to 20 minutes; drain. Add rest of the ingredients. This is also excellent mixed with hot pasta for a main dish, or to cooled pasta for a cold pasta salad.
