One of my favorite things to do during the summertime is relax in my backyard and enjoy the great outdoors. {aka the tall weeds and overgrown bushes that have taken over my yard!}

I kick back in a lawn chair and read a food magazine while my daughter climbs trees and plays on her rope swing.  That is my Happy Place.  And of course we need snacks and refreshments!

This Easy Salsa Recipe is perfect for backyard summertime snacking.  And don’t forget the Dasani Sparkling to wash it down.

  1. There’s nothing better during the summer than hanging outside with some good chips and dip! Loving this salsa!

  2. Fresh salsa really is one of the best things in the world! So easy and so GOOD!!

  3. How many tomatoes should I use if I use fresh tomatoes instead of canned? I these recipes I’m fining use canned, which is great, but I got some amazing tomatoes at the farmers market and would love to use them!!

      I’ve never used fresh tomatoes in this recipe. I’m sure it will taste amazing! I would guess about 3 cups of chopped fresh tomatoes. But, maybe you should add the tomatoes 1 cup at a time until you get the right consistency. The fresh tomatoes will be a lot juicier than the canned.
