Yummy Fresh Salsa
From: Adele Faiks-Olsgard

When you're sick, you might not feel well enough to make this, but here is a yummy salsa recipie which includes raw garlic:

  • 6 to 8 ripe tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 bunch cilantro leaves, chopped
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 5 to 7 cloves raw garlic, pressed
  • 3 to 5 (or more) tomatillos (optional), chopped
  • 3 tablespoons lemon or lime juice
  • 1 jalepeno, chopped or a couple dashes of cayenne for heat
Mix all the ingredients in a large bowl.
I press the garlic with a garlic press rather than chop because this allows the maximum flavor of the garlic to come out, with juices, etc..
Let it sit in the fridge for a couple hours for the flavors to mingle.
Serve with tortilla chips.
