By the time I have finished typing this post, we will have surpassed One Thousand Page views!! Wow!! That's Amazing!! So I would just like to say a quick Thank you for all your support in helping to get our ( Yours and Mine ) Good Food Revolution off to a great start! So Thank you all!! Now back to your regularly scheduled post :)
I love making Salsa .. Its such a great way to use up the extra tomatoes and peppers in the summer, which is when I usually make one a week just to have on hand. I use it for burgers, stuffing for meat , sides for lunch , nachos, quick flat bread pizzas... you'd be amazed at how many different ways you can use a good salsa! So you can imagine my delight when I walk into a local grocery store, in November and find fresh Ontario Tomatoes and Peppers!! (Hot House) and they didn't even want a fortune for them :))
The peanuts were not used :) They were simply my snack while preparing food, As I was also making homemade Focaccia bread and roasting a couple chicken breasts for later
|Just keep chopping and adding until your bowl is full or you run out of vegetables. The mushrooms are for the chicken breasts I was cooking... but they almost got added to the mix.|
Now at this point , you will want to add a good glug of olive oil, A few pinches of dried basil, several splashes of Worcestershire Sauce, and freshly cracked sea salt and black pepper to taste. Then mix well before the next step.
|And there you are simple, easy, great tasting 4 Pepper Salsa. I would recommend letting it sit in the fridge for a couple of hours before eating, but you don't have to .|
Now I realize a lot of you are asking WHERE is the Cilantro ?? I've got to say , I'm not a fan. I do enjoy the taste , but the smell... well I won't say what I think it smells like. Then again , the smell of skunk doesn't bother me .. So I know I'm a little different in that department. So for all you Cilantro lovers... now is the time, grab your fresh herbs, and add as much as you like! I won't be able to smell it, so its OK!
This was a medium heat easy eating salsa, you can easily make it hotter, just add another chili or a few jalapenos to the mix or for ALOT hotter go for a habanero or scotch bonnet. Or if milder is your taste, remove the chili pepper, and add a few more sweet peppers, yellows and orange one look and taste great .
That's one of the best things about salsa , you can adjust it to just about any flavour or heat level.
I encourage everyone to give this a try, and let me know how it works for you!! I'd love the feedback, even email me a picture and Ill save them for a future post!
