Roasted Tomato Salsa
A little roasting time intensifies the flavors of the tomatoes, jalapenos,and garlic, adding a rich, smoky flavor to this salsa.
10 roma tomatoes, halved lengthwise
1 jalapeno pepper
3 cloves garlic, peeled
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
½ cup red onion, chopped
2 tablespoons lime juice
sea salt to taste
Preheat the oven to 450. Toss the tomatoes, jalapeno and garlic with the oil and salt. Place on a rimmed baking sheet in a single layer. Roast for 20 minutes. Cool slightly. Transfer to a food processor. Add the cilantro, red onion and lime juice. Pulse a few times to get a chunky texture. Add salt to taste.
