This week, hgtv.com featured my One Pot Salsa Garden. Check it out to find my tips to grow everything you need for summer salsa, all in one pot. It’s such a fun, practical way to have the flavors of summer right outside your kitchen door. Along with the salsa garden, they shared one of my favorite recipes, Roasted Garden Salsa. So grab a pot (the bigger the better) and get planting!
Val’s Roasted Garden Salsa
4 tomatoes, Roma or plum
1/2 teaspoon salt
Fresh cilantro, chopped
First, roast your tomatoes and jalapeños. You can do this either on a gas stove or broil on a sheet pan in the oven. It should take about five minutes turning periodically so you ensure even blistering of the skins.
Cool on a plate until you can handle with your hands. Under cool water peel the jalapeños, discarding the stem and seeds. Give it a rough chop.
Peel the tomatoes (the skin should come right off) and give the tomatoes a rough chop, too. Mix together in a bowl and mash with a fork. Add salt, and to finish, stir in chopped fresh cilantro to taste. Serve.
