Promenade Market Salsa

Most days, I'm really a woman with few words to say.  I email a lot for my job.  When I'm with a client, I prefer to hear them talk.  I ask questions, and I listen.  I feel bad when I get so excited about what someone is saying, I just interrupt because I know what they're saying, so I just go ahead and say my thoughts.  I remember that it's bad to interrupt.  But I usually have little to say, so I figure why not just tell them how excited I am about what they're saying?!  Anyone following??
This salsa started with fresh veggies from the first Farmers Market at the Promenade at Chenal. Literally 5 minutes away from my home.  I was so happy to have them!  Hillcrest, Argenta, and the Bernice Garden are soooooo far from West Little Rock.  As much as I love them.
It's been a while since I've had an electrical appliance.  I figured I still needed to chop my veggies before I placed them into the blender.  My daughter Gianna loves smoothies, so I splurged on the $30 blender.  Still learning about the electrical blender thing.

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups of diced tomatoes, from about 3 medium tomatoes
  • half of a red onion, diced
  • 2 jalapenos, seeded and diced
  • 1 green bell pepper, diced
  • 3-5 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup of chopped cilantro
  • Salt, to taste
  • Juice of 1 lime
Directions:
  1. Mix all of the ingredients in a blender.
  2. Pulse until blended to desired consistency.
  3. Season with additional salt or lime juice if needed.
Most of the ingredients used came from Little Rock Urban Farming.
