The BEST Salsa....ever!

Dear Mom,
Last summer, I tasted the best salsa Wendy's house. Of course, it was her salsa recipe. All of my best recipes come from Wendy. In fact, if I need a recipe, I call Wendy because she always has somethin' good! So this summer, I made the salsa with tomatoes, green pepper and garlic from my own garden and jalapeno peppers and onions from the farmers market. I wanted to pass the goodness along, so I shared a small jar of the salsa with my neighbor. I wasn't surprised when she complimented the wonderful flavor and asked for the recipe!
Wendy's Salsa
3 fresh tomatoes, chopped
1 sweet onion, chopped fine
1 green pepper, chopped
1 Tbsp. lime juice
1 tsp. olive oil
1 tsp. cumin
1/4 tsp. oregano
1 tsp. chili powder
1/4 tsp garlic powder (or 2-3 cloves fresh garlic)
1 jalapeno pepper (use pickled if fresh is not available)
1 Tbsp. jalapeno juice (from pickled jalapenos)
Chop all together. Adjust quantities to taste (if a stronger or milder flavor is desired).
Wendy gave me permission to share it with the world, and I am proud to do so. Oh, and by the way, Kim's Tomato Basil Cheese Pie was...EXCELLENT, and is another special recipe I will be making every summer!
Love, Bonnie Jo
