Betty’s Tomato and Pepper Salsa

on May 7, 2012

May is National Salsa Month

In the summertime, I love being able to go out to the garden and pick fresh tomatoes & peppers for this recipe.

However, until our crops are ready for harvesting, I rely on my local grocery store for my produce.  And last week they had peppers on sale so I thought making some salsa would be a good idea.  It is such a healthy snack and all the colors mixed together look so pretty, not to mention, it tastes delicious!

Do you make homemade salsa?  What are your favorite ingredients? Feel free to share your comments below.

Here is how I make it ~

Look at all the Beautiful Colors

Look at all the Beautiful Colors!

What you need:

2 large seeded Tomatoes

1 Green Pepper

1 Red Pepper

1 Yellow Pepper

1 Orange Pepper

1/2 Red Onion

2 Green Onion

1/4 Cilantro

1/4 Parsley

Lime & Lemon Juice

Olive Oil

White Vinegar

Salt & Pepper

Note: If you want some more spice, feel free to add any other types of peppers. My kids prefer the less spicy version.

Finely chop everything.  In bowl, whisk together lemon & lime juice, olive oil, splash of white vinegar & salt & pepper. (I don’t have the exact measurements for the juices and olive oil, you don’t want the veggies to be swimming,  just add enough for flavor.)  Mix in bowl with peppers & tomatoes.

Serve with tortilla chips & ENJOY 😀

Happy Salsa making to you!


P.S. For lunch, I  add some chopped avocado to the salsa and enjoy with tortilla chips.  Very yummy 🙂
