I like to make this little “salsa” from time to time when I’m in the mood for something fresh. It’s basically a kicked up pico de gallo, but it always gets raves!
What You’ll Need:
4-6 Roma tomatoes, seeded (4 if they are large, 6 if they are smaller)
1/2 of a green bell pepper, chopped
1/2 of a red or orange bell pepper, chopped
1 bunch of scallions, chopped (There are usually 8 or 9 scallions in a bunch)
The juice of one lime
A pinch of black pepper
A pinch of cayenne pepper
A pinch of sea salt
Seed your tomatoes. (I always freeze the pulp for soup or chili later.)
Cut seeded tomatoes into strips.
Dice tomato strips and place in a medium sized bowl.
Cut Bell Pepper Into Strips.
Dice pepper and add to the bowl with the tomatoes.
Chop scallions and add to tomato/pepper mixture.
Add lime juice and seasonings. Stir to mix. Chill at least 1 before serving hour.
Notes: This “salsa” breaks down quickly due to the citrus juice. Make it the day you plan on eating it and if you have any left overs you can freeze them and use it in chili or tortilla soup later.
Red onion is a nice addition, as is freshly chopped parsley. Cilantro tastes like soap to me, so I wouldn’t advise it, but if you like the stuff, add away!
