Grocery Specials Thru Sept. 4

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.
