Grape Tomato Salsa

The tomatoes in our garden are finally deciding that they will ripen up.  And now we have grape tomatoes coming out of our ears and the tomatillos are finally deciding to ripen so J. finally got a good batch of his green salsa.

Z. is just about the only one that eats the grape tomatoes.  And while he does it a LOT of them, we had to figure out just what to do with all of them.

We keep picking and picking them but we still have loads and loads of bunches just like this one waiting to ripen.

So today while Z. and I were out there picking he decided he wanted to try and make a salsa with them.  Alrighty, let's give it a whirl.  The worst that could happen is that it doesn't taste very good but at least it would rid us of some tomatoes.  And I am all for letting him experiment with cooking, well, being in the kitchen at least.

So we brought them in, washed them up and Z. set to work.  This was after all his idea, so his recipe.

We decided since the grape tomatoes are usually on the sweeter side we would opt for yellow onions instead of a milder green onion.  Zack finished cutting the tomatoes and decided he was done with cutting, so I was the chopper and he was the instructor.  Turns out, grape tomatoes make a pretty yummy salsa.

Recipe you ask?  Who knows, we always just keep adding stuff until it tastes the way we want it to.  But here is, at least, a list of ingredients:

grape tomatoes
yellow onion
minced garlic
lime juice
