Fresh Homemade Non-Spicy Salsa
Now that I think about it, I’m not sure I have an exact recipe for this…but it’s always tasty as can be! This salsa is made from all fresh ingredients from the produce section of the supermarket. I always make more than I need and store it in an air-tight container. It’s great to throw on that “I should have used more seasoning” chicken that we make oh-so-quickly after a long day at work. I pour this concoction over top and it tastes heavenly! Check out the recipe. Remember that you can modify it to your taste preferences. If you love red onion, add more. If you hate red onion, don’t add any! This is a simple, basic recipe that can be tweaked as you see fit.
1 firm red tomato (chopped)
1 green tomato (chopped)
1/2 a red onion (chopped finely)
1 handful of cilantro (chopped)
Juice of 1 lime
About 1 Tbs or so of white vinegar
A drizzle of olive oil
A pinch of Kosher salt
Freshly ground pepper
Optional: A hot chile pepper would add spice, it tastes great without any heat, but if you must…
1. Place all ingredients in a bowl and mix gently. THAT’S IT! Let it sit in the fridge for at least an hour. It tastes even better once the ingredients have had time to mingle
Like I said before, I pour this over anything. I’ve had it over chicken breast, fish, steak, in lettuce leaves (like wraps), with baked pita chips. It tastes great with anything. Make a ton and leave it in the fridge. Enjoy!
