Originating in Mexico, salsa means "sauce" and in Mexican terms, it means firey and tomato based sauce with plenty of fresh chilies, onion, cilantro, garlic and salt. In my recipe, I have mixed fresh tomatoes, bell peppers and other ingredients and flavoured it with lemon.
Large red ripe tomatoes - 3
Green bell pepper (capsicum) - 1
Jalapeño or green chilli - 1
Red bell pepper - 1
Red Onion - 1
Handful Coirander leaves (cilantro)
Peeled garlic - 2 pods
Salt as required
Ground pepper as required
Lemon juice - 1 tablespoon
White vinegar - 1 tablespoon
Cut the tomatoes and scoop out the seeds. Chop it finely.
Chop finely the bell peppers (red and green) after taking out the seeds.
Chop finely the onion.
Chop the Jalapeño and garlic finely.
In a large mixing bowl, add all the chopped vegetables together.
Add other ingredients and mix well.
Enjoy the salsa with Tortilla.
