If you are a regular reader, you know that I am a fan of Mexican food, and one of my favorite snacks are chips with salsa. My obsession for scratch cooking comes with its drawbacks however, as it won’t allow me to open up a jar of store bought salsa. So, I make my own, regardless of how busy or tired I am.
I’ve already made Red Tomato Salsa and Tomatillo Salsa, and now I want to share with you anther favorite salsa recipe, Roasted Tomato Salsa. This was absolutely delicious and more than worth the effort!
- 6 medium tomatoes, cut in half lengthwise
- 4 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 small onion

- 2 garlic cloves
- 1 teaspoon of vegetable oil
