Fresh Tomato Salsa

Double or triple a batch of this fresh salsa to share with friends.

1 1/2 pounds fresh, ripe tomatoes, cut into large pieces (use any combination of tomatoes you have on hand)
1 small onion, cut into large pieces
1 or 2 jalapeños, seeded and cut in half (optional based on your heat tolerance)
2 limes, juiced
1 Tbsp. olive oil
½ – 1 cup fresh cilantro
1/2 tsp. ground cumin
Sea salt and fresh ground pepper, to taste

Give the tomato pieces a squeeze to remove extra juices. Set juice aside for another use or discard. Place tomatoes, onion, jalapeño peppers, lime juice, olive oil and cilantro in a food processor and pulse until it reaches your desired consistency. Season with cumin, salt and pepper to taste.

Serve with tortilla chips. Perfect for Taco Tuesday.
