Whatcha Making Wednesday: Homemade Salsa

My hubby goes back to work today after a month of vacation...tear, sigh, pout.  He is a firefighter and typically requests vacation for the majority of the month of April so he can lamb out our flock of 40 ewes.  I am grateful that he has such awesome benefits, vacation time being just one of them, and am especially thankful for the time he had at home for the past month.  Seriously though, where did the time go?  The month started off with a quick trip to Montana for my grandmother's memorial service and has since flown by as we celebrated our son's first birthday and made 50 gallons of homemade ice cream for various events (hubby re-built a 1 1/2 horse John Deere engine to churn 5 gallons at a time).  Today's WMW post is in honor of hubby - he makes great homemade salsa for guys at the fire station and here at our casa too!

Mix the following ingredients using a blender:
2 14 oz. cans of stewed tomatoes
1 small can of El Pato
1 bunch of cilantro (I included a picture of cilantro fresh from our garden - it is growing out of control!!)
1 bunch of green onions, sliced
garlic salt to taste

I like my salsa on the smoother side so I tend to blend the mixture too long for hubby's taste.  He likes it chunkier so sometimes he uses sliced, stewed tomatoes or you could even use a petite diced tomato and then just rough chop the veggies and give it all a good stir in a bowl.  Enjoy!
