Salsa Fresca recipe in a bowl

Ripe tomatoes are everywhere this time of year. You may find an abundance of tomatoes at your farmers’ market, food pantry, food store, or even in your own yard. Ripe tomatoes taste so good, but it can be overwhelming to figure out what to do with them all. Our August recipe of the month is here to help you out.

Salsa Fresca is exactly what it sounds like, a salsa recipe made with a lot of fresh vegetables. You can chop up any tomatoes you have on hand along with peppers and onions. Then you add a garlic lime dressing. You get to choose how spicy this salsa is by choosing the type of pepper you add. Serve this salsa with chips or as a topping for just about anything – tacos, burgers, hot dogs, eggs, rice and beans, potatoes, or salad.
