fresh homemade salsa - no fat & loads of flavour!

salsa ingredients just before we mixed it up - bursting with flavour!
8-10 small fresh firm plum tomatoes diced small
1 small red onion diced small
1/2 cup fresh chopped cilantro
2 jalapeno pepper, seeds removed & finely chopped
fresh lime juice squeezed from 2 limes
(optional: roast peppers over flame and remove skins)

As summer begins to wind down, I've been maxing out my in-take of tomatoes. Bill just whipped up this very simple fresh salsa (which lasts in the fridge for about 3 days)... and we've been eating it with corn chips. It would also make a fantastic topping on gf toast (not unlike bruschetta). This is a great way to get lots of good veggies into your diet. Adding two cans of rinsed beans (black beans or white kidney/cannellini) and 1/4 cup olive oil to this would turn this into an awesome bean salad. Consider this two recipes in one!!

  1. A two-pher. I like it. And I can almost smell the cilantro! Finally back from my "laptop drama" hiatus, and catching up -- hope you are doing well!
