A Refreshing Summer Twist To A Mexican Classic

Salsa is one of my favorite things to re-invent.  There is just so many directions you can take it!  This is a bright and tart salsa “cruda” using heirloom tomatoes.  The secret is to remove all of the tomato water and seeds so as not to make the salsa watery.



Citrus Salsa with Heirloom Tomatoes and Avocado

2 Large heirloom tomatoes, water and seeds removed and diced into 1/2 inch pieces
2 Oranges, peeled and diced into 1/2 inch pieces
1 Avocado, peeled and diced inot 1/2 inch pieces
1 Lime, juiced
1 Garlic clove, finely minced
2 Tablespoons chopped Cilantro
1/2 a jalapeno, finely minced
salt to taste

Mix all of the ingredients in a bowl careful not to bruise the avocado.  The salsa should remain chunky and not become creamy.

    Yum yum yummy! Gorgeous photos and that tomato must have been positively delicious! I have an always exact copy of it sitting on my counter right now! Love those heirloom varieties, such rich flavour and this salsa looks divine!
