Easiest tasty salsa

Towards the end of summer and into the fall I kept making this easy and delicious salsa. And then we ate it all and I made more. I made so much that I decided to freeze some so we could still enjoy it when it snowed. Like today.

  1. Prepare ingredients: Cut the tops off of three tomatoes and one jalapeno, peel half an onion and peel one clove of garlic (I usually make more than this, but these are approximately my ratios. Except if you make more, be sure not to surpass your food processor’s max line for liquids…).
  2. Roast. Oven at about 450° F. Spray or drizzle the vegetables/fruits with olive oil. Roast for about 20-30 minutes or until the tops caramelize a little. Sometimes I let the tomatoes roast longer than the other pieces.
  3. Put it all in a food processor, with the juice from roasting. Add a little salt and pepper to taste. Pulse.
  4. Done. Refrigerate, or eat hot because maybe you can’t wait. I also froze some and that works too when you have a ton of vegetables in your pest-free and weed-free garden.
