Loading Dock Homemade Salsa Recipe.


The loading dock is a popular place in Grafton Illinois. It is known for their homemade salsa. This salsa is so fresh tasting- that once you make this salsa recipe- you will make no other. It's also a good recipe to use up all those homegrown tomatoes. Until recently I was blessed with their recipe. Now it will take a special place in our home- hence not having to drive to the loading dock to get it.

      I use homegrown tomatoes to make a dip similar to this one except I don't have a name for my recipe! It tastes absolutely sensational with corn chips.
