Recipe Swap: Home Made Salsa

There is nothing that we love more than chips and salsa.  It really never gets old and is always delicious.  The great thing about pigging out on salsa is that it is super healthy for you, so you don't have to feel guilty about over indulging...except for the chips.  Darn them!

So when doing a recipe swap with Mike from Mr. Shine's Food Blog it was a no-brainer which recipe I was going to choose! I only made a few adjustments.  Oh yea, and you may have heard of Mike's wife Ashley from The Shine Project.

Home Made Salsa

Home Made Salsa

4 small California white peaches (or 2 large)
5 tomatoes
1/2 a cucumber
4 tomatillos
2/3 of a red onion

2 teaspoons roasted garlic
2 cups cilantro
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
juice from 2 limes
a couple pinches of salt
a couple grinds of pepper

Give the peaches, tomatoes, cucumber, tomatillos, and red onion a rough chop.
Place all the ingredients in a food processor or blender. And pulse until your desired consistency.  

The salsa was so yummy and I even brought it to a neighborhood cook out.  Everyone loved it!  I also want to try the Mexican Hummus.

Pin It!
