Tips you need to pull off a successful Labor Day BBQ, plus a recipe for perfect dip to keep your guests occupied while you finished up dinner on the grill.
  • 1 ½ pint cherry tomatoes, chopped into quarters
  • 3 small tomatillos, small dice
  • 1 red bell pepper, small dice
  • 2 jalapenos, seeds removed and diced small
  • 1 bunch green onions, sliced thin
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • Juice of one lemon
  • Handful fresh cilantro, chopped
  • Handful fresh parsley, chopped
  • Heavy drizzle olive oil
  • Generous pinch of salt, to taste
  1. Chop all ingredients small. You want everything to be a consistent, small size. As you chop through ingredients, place them in a large bowl. Add olive oil and salt. Taste for seasoning and adjust if necessary. Let sit in the refrigeration for at least a couple hours before serving. You could even make this salsa a day in advance if you wanted to. It will taste that much better.
  2. Serve with chips. Over burgers, tacos, or salads.
