ROASTED TOMATO SALSA


One shot glass! That is all I managed to scrape out of the bowl this morning to take a picture. I have learned my lesson, I need to take a picture of what I make before I put it to its doom in the fridge. It seems my husband and some unnamed culprits had at my salsa during the night but so kindly left me remnants to fill one shot glass. Oh well, I guess there's the proof I need that its good salsa!

ROASTED TOMATO SALSA

8 Roma tomatoes, halved
1 jalapeno, halved
olive oil
1 medium sweet onion, coarsely chopped
4 garlic cloves, peeled
salt
pepper
1/2 lime, juiced
cilantro, handful, chopped
sugar (optional, if you want it a little sweeter)

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Line a baking sheet with tin foil. Place the tomato halves and jalapeno halves skin side up on the baking sheet and drizzle with a little olive oil.

Roast for about 15 minutes or until the jalapeno is blackened and the tomato skins are peeling.

Once tomatoes have cooled enough to handle, peel off the skins. I prefer my salsa mild so I de-seed one jalapeno half. If I am making it for my husband I leave all the seeds in and it still isn't hot enough for him.

Once the tomatoes and jalapenos are cool add to a food processor and add the onion, garlic and cilantro.

Pulse a few times until desired consistency.
Squeeze 1/2 lime over the salsa and season with salt and pepper. Pulse one last time.
Keep refrigerated and give it a few hours for all the flavors to blend.

What a scrumptious sounding salsa! No wonder it disappeared :)

That's a great looking salsa and I can understand why there's only a shot glass full left!

Kim said...

I think you had a great idea to pile it into a shot glass and take a picture. That's creative!
I don't think I've ever had a roasted tomato salsa before but I would venture to say that it would have more flavor than a plain tomato salsa anyday. Looks great!
