Five Ingredient Fresh Garden Salsa

Last summer, our garden yielded a wonderful crop of tomatoes, cilantro and chives. I was thrilled with this abundance, since it meant being able to make weekly batches of this easy, delicious Fresh Garden Salsa. Just add in some lime and sea salt, and you'll have a great topping for Mexican night or a lovely afternoon snack!

I am very imprecise with this recipe...I think it's actually impossible to mess this one up since all the flavors are so fresh and complimentary. So here's about what you'll need: 

1 cup cilantro (finely diced)
1/2 cup chives (finely diced)
6-8 roma* tomatoes (diced)
A lime
Sea salt 
*roma tomatoes work best since their insides aren't as runny

1) Dice all veggies (I'm not picky about how finely or evenly everything is diced)
2) Combine veggies in a large bowl and shower with juice of one lime 
3) Sprinkle with sea salt & stir

The salsa will taste best if you refrigerate and let the flavors sit together for at least an hour before serving. Grab a bag of tortilla chips or your favorite taco recipe and enjoy!
