Fresh Salsa

We love this time of the year when the vegetables are starting to ripen in the garden and we have an abundance of tomatoes. A batch of fresh salsa is gone within minutes of being made. 

This recipe is pretty flexible. In this batch I have 15-20 grape tomatoes diced, about 2/3 cup chopped peppers (green, red, yellow, and orange), 1/4 of a large purple onion chopped, 2 cloves of garlic minced, 1 jalapeno seeded and diced, about 2 teaspoons sugar, salt and pepper to taste, and about a tablespoon of lime juice. (If you don't have lime juice, add a couple of teaspoons of vinegar.) 

I don't always have the colored peppers, so most of the time I just add chopped green pepper. 

We eat the salsa with Tostitos Scoops. It is definitely a summer favorite.
