I recently had an abundance of tomatoes in my garden. Like a LOT of tomatoes. It had been about a week since I had picked any, and apparently their lives went on without me. They were all ready to be plucked in their ripeness and made into spaghetti sauce, diced tomatoes and salsa.
I have made salsa a few times in the past, but I wanted to come up with my own recipe that was quick (my favorite!) and zesty. Many of the recipes I scoured online required either boiling the tomatoes and removing the skin or buying pre-canned tomatoes. I didn’t like either of those options. So, I decided to fiddle around with my blender until I came up with the perfect salsa. One that only took 5 minutes to prepare and could be enjoyed immediately. And then my 5 Minute Blender Salsa was born!
