cook it: Nancy's Salsa

didn't know what to do with our latest batch of garden goodness
until i remember nancy's salsa!

Nancy was a chef out at Young Life's Crooked Creek Ranch. She made the best salsa ever. I ate gobs and gobs of it while Josh was working out there. I managed to pry the recipe out of her. Then I had to whittle it down to a manageable size (she was making salsa for 500 a week---me, not so much!)

Be prepared to be addicted folks!

Nancy's Salsa

12 roma tomatoes
2 jalapenos
1 bunch cilantro
1 bunch of green onion

1 T salt
1 T pepper
1 oz lemon juice
1/2 oz soy sauce
2 T sugar
1/2 oz distilled white vinegar

1) chop and mix tomatoes, jalapenos, cilantro and green onion. you can also you a food processor if you'd like
2) add in all other ingredients

Now, is that a simple recipe or what?! We use this salsa with whatever kind of tomatoes we can get our hands on. Roma tomatoes seem to make the least "water-y" salsa, but free is always best in my book and so we'll use whatever is growing in our garden (currently better boy and grape tomatoes.)

This salsa is great served with chips, quesadillas, nachos and over grilled chicken (I had it back when I was a meat eater---grilled chicken topped with mexican blend cheese and salsa---remember it being totally delish.)

So mix up a batch of margaritas, or sangria or just some good 'ole lemonade. You'll need something to quench your thirst when you're chowing down on this salsa!
