Karen’s Homemade Salsa

Last night, we did a little impromptu summer grilling.  We had tortilla chips to snack on, but I realized that I didn’t have any canned salsa in the pantry.  I had canned tomatoes and fresh cilantro that I’d picked up at the farmer’s market on Thursday, so I figured I would try and whip some up myself.

I was pleasantly surprised at how tasty it turned out and how quickly I was able to put it together.  I thought this was a must share for summer & a perfect quick & easy Meatless Monday recipe.
