This time of year can be super busy as the kids go back to school and activities come back in full force.  It is always great to have recipes on hand that are quick and easy but full of flavor.  If they can be served as an after school snack, even better!  This recipe combines many of the share ingredients from this week- tomatoes, onions, garlic, sweet peppers, hot peppers, and shishito peppers.  Enjoy this end of summer blended salsa as a snack or as a topping for a Mexican inspired meal.
