Tequila Salsa

Aren't you loving all the recipes for Farmers Market Week?  I am gathering a lot of new recipes to use with all the fresh produce that is being sold now.  One of the best produce items this week are tomatoes. I adore tomatoes, and I love this salsa recipe!

This spring we met a gentleman who had made Tequila Salsa at the Lake Saint Louis Farmers Market but he sold out early in the season. I decided to try to make my own.  I think I even like it better!

Tequila and salsa and blue corn chips

I got two large tomatoes from GlenMark Farms and made my salsa. This is a fresh salsa, not intended to be canned or jarred. We eat this up within a week's time. We use it on eggs, eat it on chips and have used it on grilled chicken breasts.  All equally delicious!
