Happy 4th... or 8th

We stocked up on homemade salsa and hummus and headed Up North for the long weekend. 
The essentials, right?
This salsa recipe is better than anything you can buy in the store- *I promise* and it's fresher too.

Every day was a fabulous beach day. 

Each ended like this with appetizers on the deck. Pretty relaxing... well, as relaxing as it can be with a seven year old that loves to sing and dance *constantly*.  

Hope you had a great weekend too.

Salsa time
 2 onions   
1 jalapeno
4 large tomatoes   
2-3 limes
1 large bunch of Cilantro- chopped

Pre heat your oven to 425 degrees.
Add 1 roughly chopped onion, 4 large whole tomatoes and 1 jalapeno to a baking sheet. Drizzle olive oil and 2 Tbs. of minced garlic over the top and bake until lightly charred. The jalapeno will be slightly blackened. Let the tray cool and then puree everything in a blender/ Cuinine Art.

Place the mixture in a large bowl and add 1 finely chopped onion, one large bunch of cilantro, and juice of 2-3 limes. Salt and pepper to taste. Add a little cayenne pepper if you still want more heat. 
It will taste even better if you have time to chill it over night.
