Roasted Vegetable Salsa

You garden may be overflowing with tomatoes, and I have a great recipe you can use them in!  A Roasted Vegetable Salsa!  Veggies are always more flavorful when they are roasted and allowed to caramelize.  They get a sweetness to them, and a little smokiness, and these qualities are delicious in salsa.  This recipe makes a big jar, and it is wonderful served over tacos of course, but also salads, with chips for snacking or over proteins like sauteed tempeh.  Basically whatever you would like to add lots of flavor to.  Not only that, it is healthy as well!  Tomatoes contain a lot of vitamin C, and antioxidants, and this delicious salsa is the perfect way to get them in!
