Quarantine's turning everyone into gardeners and vegetable farmers. My garden has been overflowing with cherry tomatoes and herbs so I thought, what a perfect time to make some salsa!
The abundance of cherry tomatoes this salsa a unique roasted sweetness that is so addicting! I used jalapeños and Serranos for extra heat, but the great thing about salsa is that you can customize it to your liking. Feel free to interpret and leave your comments below!
