A versatile salsa that is great on tacos or just served with chips. The roasted vegetables add a hint of smokiness and a ton of flavor.

Equipment

  • Cast iron skillet

Ingredients
  

  • 4 medium tomatoes cored and halved
  • 1 medium white onion quartered
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 2 jalapenos halved and seeded
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro roughly chopped
  • 1 lime juiced

Instructions
 

  • Add 2 tbsp of olive oil to a cast iron skillet. Add the tomatoes, onion, garlic and jalapenos. Sprinkle vegetables with 2 tbsp of olive oil. Season the vegetables with salt and pepper.
  • Roast in a wood fired oven until the vegetables are soft and slightly charred. Alternatively, roast the vegetables under a broiler (about 6” from the broiler).
  • Transfer the roasted vegetables to a blender. Add the cilantro and lime juice and blend. Adjust lime, salt and pepper to taste. Thin with a little water if the salsa is too thick.
  • Eat fresh or refrigerate in an airtight container. It’s actually better the second day after the flavors have blended. Salsa will keep in the refrigerator about 7 days, if it lasts that long.
