Heirloom Tomatoes!

The first of my heirloom tomatoes rippened last week!

I visited Mom's garden and picked a sackful of jalapeños and white onions, then came home and made a kick-ass salsa.

Simple Salsa
3 tomatoes, diced
1 med onion, diced
1-3 cloves garlic, minced
1-3 jalapeños, seeded and diced
juice of one lime
2-3 Tbs fresh cilantro, chopped
Salt to taste

This is a very basic but yummy recipe, and one that can be altered to suit any taste. Personally I go heavy on the garlic and jalapeños. We packed this salsa into a cooler along with some other goodies and had a nice picnic at Devou Park while enjoying the Kentucky Symphony Orchestra play the music of James Bond.
