Fresh Salsa for a Crowd

My sons, husband and I had several “kitchen projects” that we did together today, one of which was to make a huge batch of fresh salsa. We’re expecting some company to come over tomorrow and Wednesday to go swimming, so we thought it’d be fun to have some chips and salsa on hand to serve to them.

Here’s our recipe for fresh salsa:

Fresh Salsa for a Crowd

10 large beefsteak tomatoes
2 bunches fresh cilantro, chopped
2 large yellow onions, diced
5 mild Jalapenos, seeded and diced
2 green bell peppers, seeded and diced
2 T. lime juice
2 cloves garlic, minced
Salt and Pepper, to taste
Optional: 2 T. olive oil

Combine all ingredients and refrigerate. Makes about 10 cups of salsa—definitely enough for a crowd!

Of course, to make this much salsa, it’s helpful to have a couple of teenagers in the house—at least, teenagers who are willing to do some—well, lots—of chopping! Here’s a pic of my helpers at work:

Happy salsa making!
