Cherry Salsa

Another one of the things I love about Jenn over at A Cook’s Quest is that she grows a garden. She is able to put together frugal recipes while using ingredients she picked for free from her own backyard! Doesn’t get much more FAB than that!

This week she combined a few of those fresh ingredients to make a salsa I had never heard of:

Cherry Salsa

2 cups cherries, pitted
1-2 jalapenos (you decide on this one)
1/4 cup very finely diced onion
1/2 cilantro (measured before it’s chopped)
1 tsp. sugar
lime zest
lime juice

Chop your cherries,  jalapenos (I would recommend wearing gloves on this one), onion and cilantro. This can be done by hand or if you want pulse everything in a food processor. It really depends on how you like your salsa. Add the zest of the lime and the juice. Season to taste with salt.

This got better as the day went on. I would recommend making it at least 2 hours in advance for the flavors to come together. Like most salsa recipes, feel free to substitute your favorite flavors and use the produce that is fresh to your area!

Total cost $.42
Sugar $.02
Lime $.15
Onion $.25
