Money Saving Tips: Fresh Salsa
One of the best ways to save money is to only buy produce when it’s on sale.
I just got a bunch of roma tomatoes on sale for .33/lb so I couldn’t resist making some fresh salsa!
Since onions, cilantro, and limes are relatively inexpensive, I made a whole jar for around .92 cents!
6 roma tomatoes
1/4 bunch of cilantro
1/4 of a small onion
1 small lime
1 small jalapeño pepper *(optional)
salt and pepper to taste
1. Chop up all tomatoes. (If you have a food processor, put them in and pulse the processor until they are chopped.) Transfer tomatoes to a bowl.
2. Finely chop onion, cilantro, and *jalapeño.
(For food processor, pulse the onion, cilantro, and jalapeño together. If they get too stuck to the side of the jar, add a little bit of lime juice so they chop better). Add this mixture to the bowl with the tomatoes.
*For less heat, de-seed the jalapeño before chopping it and putting it into the salsa. The less seeds you use, the less spicy your salsa will be*
3. Squeeze half of all of the lime into the mixture and stir.
(depending on how much you lime flavor you like).
4. Add salt and pepper to taste.
