Rustic Salsa ™

This is an easy recipe for fresh salsa. This is great to serve along with your favorite tortilla chips. It's also a great way to use extra tomatoes from a garden.

I used roma tomatoes for this recipe, but you can use any tomatoes that you like. I've also used cilantro which is like parsley but with a little attitude to it. If preferred, use parsley instead.

3 Roma tomatoes (diced)
1 bell pepper (diced)
1 cup onions (diced)
1/4 tsp pepper
1/8 tsp red pepper flakes (optional)
1-2 tsp lime juice (to taste)
2 tsp fresh cilantro (chopped)
1-2 tsp diced chilies (I used banana peppers)

Combine ingredients in a serving bowl, mix well. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Makes 12 servings (2 T)

For the life of me I cannot acquire a taste for cilantro, so I would have to use parsley. This sounds easy and delicious. Makes for a wonderful snack!

I like your thinking. Cilantro is really parsley with an attitude. Great way to put it.

I am with Katy on this. I have bought fresh cilantro once and it is not for me.

The rest of the recipe looks fantastic. Thanks for posting it.
