Simple Homemade Salsa Recipe

Freshly squeezed lime ...

That's practically all you need to make this super simple recipe that tastes like a fresh summer vegetable garden exploded in your mouth. church and lunch at the gossip shop, my mother-in-law heads over to my brother-in-law's to cuddle and coo all over our niece and nephews.

bag of tomatoes, green bell peppers, hot peppers, zucchini & amp; Squash, and cucumbers that have overtaken his garden.

The zucchini, squash, and cucumbers I do not necessarily mind because those are vegetables that I can eat by themselves, p> Yeah ... I'm really down with them.

Sometimes I can be a blasphemous southerner.

You will NEVER see me eating sliced ​​tomatoes, tomato sandwiches, or tomato pie

So, when my MIL started bringing home these tomatoes over and over. again and our vegetable drawer started resembling a roadside veggie bin and she said she thought I could figure some way to use them, I just stared at her blankly and smiled a huge fake smile while slightly panicking on the inside. What was I going to do with 7 zillion pounds of tomatoes?!?

Then my adorable husband came to the rescue and said we should make salsa to go with the tacos we were making that evening. >

Ugh. The man is brilliant.

I just want to love him.

So, yeah, this recipe? to go!

Seriously. It's that simple.
