This is my mother’s salsa recipe. It’s based mostly on how everything looks so the portions aren’t precise. But, here’s my best attempt:

Tomatoes and onions, diced small at about a 3 parts tomato to one part onion (1 cup tomato to 1/4 to 1/3 cup onion or so. Adjust to taste)
About 2 Tbsp. Cilantro
1/2 tsp. Garlic powder
Juice from 1/2 orange

Mix and, for best results let sit (refrigerated and covered) overnight so the flavors have a chance to marry.

As you can see, this salsa has no peppers in it. No heat at all, but tons of flavor. As I said, this is all approximate so make sure you taste as you go and adjust where you need to.

    As soon as I get tomatoes out of the garden, I’m giving this a try! The orange intrigues me…I’ve got tons of green tomatoes, but no red ones yet!
