Fresh Homemade Gluten Free Tomato and Chive Salsa with Lime

Bowl of Fresh Homemade Gluten Free Tomato and Chive Salsa with Lime

My sweetheart Alan is a salsa and corn chips addict! We go through  a ton of Pace in this apartment. A few days ago we were out thrifting with my aunt when she asked if we wanted to see her garden. I had eaten many veggies from it but never visited. I assumed it was at her house, boy was I in for a nifty surprise.  When we turned down a gravel alleyway I was  greeted by multiple garden plots in a place I never expected them. Apparently the county rents out these spaces for gardening on an income based scale. I had never even known such a system existed. What a great idea!

She gave us a ton of kale and collards. We also ended up with more chives than I knew what to do with. When I realized I had some tomatoes that really needed using up I had a brilliant idea, fresh homemade tomato and chive salsa. The chives are not something I would usually think of for a salsa, but  Alan despises cilantro (a salsa stape). I chopped everything up added some lime juice and salt and this salsa was born. Alan’s face lit up when he tasted it. He said if I made this salsa regularly we could finally quit buying the jarred stuff. I see that as a major accomplishment and a rave review! Eating healthier doesn’t have to be hard it just takes creativity and an open mind.
