Farmgirl Winter Salsa – Super Easy!

This is breakfast today of 3 egg whites, 1 whole egg and Winter Salsa!

I am a HUGE fan of fresh salsa.  My heart flutters when I think of walking to the garden and picking fresh vine ripened tomatoes, firm green jalapenos, fragrant onions and cilantro, and a perfect bulb of garlic, chopping them up and savoring the fresh flavors with crunchy tortilla chips.

Did you just swoon?

I did!

Ok, back to reality.  Currently I have none of the above and I’m guessing you don’t either.  Buying tomatoes and jalapenos at the grocery store is pretty sad right now so I have the answer for you.  Winter Salsa.  All that’s needed from the produce section is onion, garlic and cilantro and the rest requires a can opener.  I promise you’ll love this salsa.  It’s super addicting and I always keep a container of it in the fridge during the Winter months.

Let me know what you thought!  I love hearing from you.
