Meal Monday: salsa!

What do you do when your garden explodes and does this...

You scour Pinterest for salsa recipes and make this...

This was probably the easiest salsa recipe I've ever made.  Normally, I do a pico de gallo type salsa but I just didn't feel like chopping all the ingredients.  For this one, you cut the tops off the veggies, maybe cut them in to big chunks, and if you are like me, squeeze some of the seeds out of the tomatoes.  Throw it all in a blender and pulse to your desired consistency.  I like my salsa with a little more of a kick, so I used two whole jalapenos (minus most of the seeds).  Next batch, I'll probably leave more seeds in because this one didn't get quite hot enough.  I also used a cilantro paste I picked up at the store the other day instead of fresh cilantro.  I won't do that again because there wasn't enough cilantro flavor.  The rest of the recipe I pretty much followed as written.

You can find the recipe here!

Do you like your salsa chunky or smooth?
