I should have really named this post summertime sadness salsa, since it’s already the end of August. If only I knew where the summer has gone…
One of the reasons I love summer so much, is due to the fact that there is so much organic produce so readily available to me. This is mainly because my lovely grandfather has an enormous garden with an array of organic fruits and vegetables. It’s always best to buy organic produce if you cannot grow your own.
I am a big fan of Mexican food, which is partially attributed to the fact that I LOVE salsa. In terms of Mexican cuisine, nothing beats a freshly made salsa, in my opinion of course. There are so many variations of salsa that you can make, but by trying out many myself, I have come up with the perfect recipe. One that is perfectly balanced, with the right amount of sweetness and saltiness. Who would have thought to add some honey to salsa?
This salsa is by far one of the most tastiest I've tried. It's sweet, tangy, salty, fresh and vibrant.
- 1 cup Roma tomatoes, seeded and coursely chopped
- 1/2 red bell pepper, finely chopped
- 1/2 red onion, finely chopped
- 1/2 garlic glove, minced
- 1 teaspoon cilantro, finely chopped
- juice from 1/2 a lime
- 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
- 1 teaspoon natural honey
- pinch of sea salt
- Mix all ingredients together well. Store in fridge for 10 minutes before serving. This allows the juices to come together, for a more flavourful salsa.
Use organic produce whenever possible. Serve over tacos, in a salad, or with some tortillas.
