Big Game Day Salsa

Nothing is better than homemade salsa...well...except homemade guacamole!  I just can't bring myself to purchase store bought salsa unless it is made fresh daily.  Making salsa is so easy and there is no recipe.  Some people like a chunky salsa such as pico de gallo, or a charred smokey salsa, but I have always preferred a simple blended salsa without a lot of chunks.

It all starts with the best tomatoes you can find because this is the base.  In the summer I use juicy heirloom tomatoes, but in winter the next best option is canned San Marzano Crushed Tomatoes.  From there you can build on flavor with finely minced white onion, garlic, jalapeno and cilantro.  And finish with freshly squeezed lime juice and sea salt.  

So simple, so yummy...and good for you too!  Enjoy the game and the food tomorrow...go Denver...Omaha!!!
