Anyone have Tadpole's salsa recipe?

nicole_ontSeptember 22, 2012

I'm at a big farmer's market and buying a giant basket of tomatoes to make sauce and salsa. I remember people raving over TT's salsa - think I'll try it if I can get the recipe. Wondering too what else I should buy for it while I'm here.

Thanks in advance!

I see the one OAH shared has cumin in it, now. OAH must have changed his original recipe.

That's Cilantro Glender..... :)

The recipe remains as basic as ever.. you just add a thing or two that makes you happy. Cilantro is a very potent and polarising herb, seems like most people either love it or hate it. Jenny loves it so it makes the salsa. I slapped the current version on another thread. Not much different from years ago.

Nicole (first, nice to see you again), when you make gemini's salsa (sounds delicious) make sure you do skin the tomatoes as she directed. It's easy if you drop them in boiling water for a minute or so. If you leave the skins on you will have a completely different outcome. The salsa will very possibly gelatinize. Not nasty to eat but certainly not what you envisioned.

I think between the two recipes you will have a cool couple of salsas! One seems to be a clone of the jarred type picante' sauce and the other is that bowl you usually find in the strip mall Mexican joints.

Cumin and cilantro are not the same thing...most of the rest of the world calls cilantro "coriander".

I made "Annies"
salsa a few weeks ago (substituting Annaheim peppers and making half a recipe) and it was the very BEST fresh salsa ever. Those I canned are on the shelf...but cooked makes it change a bit. I would add fresh cilantro when I open the jar...not within the canning process.
