Fresh Salsa

Who wants to know just how cool my dad really is? (this is where you raise your hand and say ME!!)
We went down to visit the family in Vancouver. We got there late Friday night. Late for me, anyway. 8pm. =) Randomly chatting with my father, I told him I was craving some home made salsa. They didn't have any. So GUESS what he did? He went to the store, bought all the ingredients, and at around midnight, he hand made, especially for me, this amazing fresh salsa. Yes. THAT'S how cool he is! Midnight!! 
This stuff is in-credible. Seriously. I am going to always have these ingredients on hand. It took about 15-20 mins including cleanup for him and my brother Andrik to make this. It made the perfect side to a bacon and cheese omelet. DELISH!!

Fresh Salsa, D. K. style

20 Roma tomatoes
2 large white onions
3 packs mint
1 bunch cilantro
3 limes
1 tablespoon olive oil
salt/pepper to taste (He used white pepper)

Chop everything small and combine! That easy!

Here's a photo of that amazing man meeting his third grandchild, Vienna Ruth-Marie!

P.S. Vienna is doing great! Getting so big!! 


  1. mmmm...I love fresh salsa! What a nice guy your dad is!!

  2. I can already tell this will be my favorite salsa recipe! No jalepenos!!! Praise your name forever, Dan! Oops, ducking from lightning strike.

  3. I totally say its the mint that makes this salsa. incredible! you will love it, glenda!

  4. I want to try it too...but I have to say I have never bought mint! Prob a weird question to you, but how and where do you find it???

  5. Safeway has mint! In the fresh lettuce section, they're in plastic containers that are usually hanging. Safeway actually has a pretty good selection of fresh herbs! I get my cilantro from WinCo.
