Fresh Salsa

I was asked to bring chips and salsa to a Christmas party recently. I remembered something of a recipe for homemade salsa and decided to make my own. Something of an experiment, but it seemed to be a success. Very mild. Requires overnight preparation.

Finely chop a quarter of a white onion and half a green pepper. (If desired, include a small amount of either jalepeno or chili pepper.)

Add a shake of chili powder, a bit of freshly ground coriander, a few shakes each of black pepper and lime pepper, a shake of cumin. Adjust to taste. Add cilantro and a bit of garlic if desired. Mix and place in fridge overnight or for eight hours.

Two to three hours before serving, cut up two pints of grape (or cherry) tomatos and add to mixture. Chill. Serve with tortilla chips or similar. Can be used as a vegetable dip.

Like most of my recipes this one isn't very precise. But I hope you like it and find it useful.

Merry Christmas!!
