However, tomato season is almost here, so it was time to try again. Being in the desert, our farmer’s market sells fresh organic tomatoes almost year round, but I much prefer the price when I am pulling them from our own garden! It won’t be long now until we will have an abundance of produce to use in all of our favorite recipes.
I wanted a fresh salsa to go with the Carne Asada I was making for dinner and this turned out to be absolutely perfect with it. My oldest son loved it and has eaten this with almost every meal since then. It was awesome on eggs and on rice; we loved it with our enchiladas as well.
The key here is to very finely dice as many of the ingredients as possible. This let the flavors really meld together without huge chunks of tomatoes or onions to distract from the flavor. I went easy on the cilantro as well, because cilantro has killed many a salsa dish in my own experience. If you love cilantro, go crazy with it and feel free to add just as much as your family likes!
