When your garden starts to explode with tomatoes because of unusual hot weather in September the only thing I could figure to use them for was Homemade Garden Salsa!
In our house hold we are a little weird when it comes to salsa. We actually do not like it spicy, unless you are my teenage son. Also I am about to admit something crazy! We don’t like cilantro either! I know, I know we are weird! I mean, I don’t mind it when I go to a restaurant and it is added a little into my salsa there but I really just do not care for it at home.
My husband either. So in this we are replacing the cilantro with parsley, because they are similar and because my garden has parsley all over the place!
This salsa actually came out almost sweet because of the garden fresh tomatoes I used in it but I also added a little garlic powder and dried oregano to enhance the flavor. Oh and I cooked the salsa.
I know another thing you are saying, Do what? Yes I cooked it. I wanted my salsa to be chunky but not crunchy so to make it both ways I cooked it low and slow and we are completely satisfied how this non traditional salsa came to be! ENJOY!
