FRESH TOMATO SALSA

FRESH TOMATO SALSA

When entertaining guests recently, I served as starters fresh tomato salsa, made by me at home, with store-bought tortilla chips or nachos. As you know Salsa is a kind of spicy sauce or salad derived from a Spanish word. What I made was adapted from the recipe for The Best Fresh Tomato Salsa by Cheryl Dressler in All Recipes.

I modified the recipe to suit our Indian palate and it came out really well. I am glad to say that my guests enjoyed the salsa, and left me wishing I had made more!



Ingredients:
  • Tomatoes, chopped, 2 cups
  • Green Bell Pepper, chopped, 1/3 cup
  • Onion, diced, 1/4 cup
  • Coriander Leaves, finely chopped, 2 tbsp.
  • Fresh Lime Juice, 1 tbsp.
  • Green Chillies, chopped, 2
  • Cumin Powder, 1/4 tsp
  • Salt, to taste
  • Freshly Ground Black Pepper, 1/2 tsp

Method:

In a bowl, mix together the chopped tomatoes, green bell pepper, onion, and green chillies
Add the coriander leaves and cumin powder
Stir in the lime juice and mix well
Sprinkle the salt and black pepper
Toss until the salsa is well mixed and serve with Nachos
