Simple Summer Salsa

My friend 'Weenie' showed me this recipe a couple of summers ago and I've adapted it just a bit and it is the most delicious salsa, you're going to LOVE it!  You will need the following items
  • Food Processor
  • Cutting Board
  • Knife
  • Can Opener
  • Large can diced tomatos
  • Tomato Paste
  • Fresh tomatos
  • 3-4 cloves Garlic
  • 2 Bell Peppers
  • 1 Jalapeno
  • bunch of Cilantro
  • Italian Dressing Seasoning Packet
  • Rice Wine Vinegar

Place Jalepeno, Cilantro and Garlic in food processor and chop.  You want these ingredients to be the finest so put them in first.


Add tomatoes and pulse.

Core bell peppers and add to processor, pulse until chopped.

At this point your vegetables should look something like this.

Add packet of Italian Dressing Seasoning, you can substitute a bottle of Italian Dressing if that's all you have.  I just don't care for all the oil in my salsa.

Now add 1/2 small can of tomato paste and 3-4 Tablespoons of Rice Wine Vinegar, this is a sweet vinegar and adds just enough acid. Pulse in food processor until combined.

Now place mixture in large lidded bowl, stir in your canned tomatos by hand, I don't care to run them through the food processor. The diced tomatoes help keep it nice and chunky.
