You can adjust this recipe anyway you like. If you want to make a smaller batch I suggest cutting it down to 1 pound of tomatoes. But I find that everyone wants some it so I always make a bit more.

Heirloom Tomato Salsa

3 pounds Heirloom tomatoes

5 or 6 jalapeño or serrano chiles (amount depends on your heat preference)

1 white onion, coarsely chopped

3 cloves garlic


3 teaspoons sea salt

heirloom tomatoes


Toast the onions, chiles and garlic in a pan under the broiler in your oven until blackened. Cut the tomatoes in half and place them under the broiler until blackened as well. Add all of the ingredients to a blender and puree until smooth. Taste for salt and finish with chopped cilantro.
