Fresh Homemade Salsa Recipe!

My cousin Debi sent me this photo at the beginning of the week, telling me that these are the fresh ingredients (many of them from her garden) that she used to make fresh salsa this week. So of course, I had to ask her for the recipe!

Have I mentioned before that I’m on a diet?  I’ve been on one since the end of March.  I’ve lost thirty pounds so far.  I’d literally eat my arm off to get hold of some fresh salsa right now.  Spread all over a big bowl of tortilla chips.


She asked me to add the photo to my photo challenge for last week, but I’m afraid that I heard nothing after the word, “salsa”.  So I asked her if she would be willing to part with the recipe.  I can’t have it, but I’m betting my readers just might enjoy a summer recipe fresh from the garden.

And she was kind enough to share.  So here you go.  Fresh from the garden:
