Fresh Salsa!

A good friend in California prepared this salsa for the family daily while I was visiting. I named my version of the recipe after her daughter, Elianna, who was my helper while planting their herb garden!

Simple ingredients and minutes to prepare, this combination creates a flavorful and expressive salsa. The secret spice is the cumin which adds a hint of suprise for the taste buds .  What’s right on is the consistency, not to chunky and not too soupy.  Once you prepare this for the first time…you may just start making it daily.

1 small onion-cut in half
1 garlic clove-skin off
2 baby carrots or 1/3 of a full size carrot
1/4 cup cilantro (not packed)
1/4-1/2 small jalapeño pepper (veins and seeds removed)
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice (lemon works in a pinch)
1/8 tsp cumin
1/8 kosher salt (optional)

Add all ingredients except the tomatoes.
Give it a few good pulses.
Next add 1-15 oz can organic diced tomatoes and pulse a few times to get desired consistency.
Put in a bowl and garnish with a sprig of cilantro and or a lime wedge. Disfruta!
