Let’s kick the new year with some healthy food, shall we? I made this SUPER FRESH TOMATO SALSA a couple of days ago, but then I haven’t had the chance to post it.
I had the privilege to spend 1 full year during my high school in Las Cruces, New Mexico. One thing that I loved most while I was there was the Mexican food! I believe it has influenced me so much in the way I eat. I love love love Salsa, Guacamole, Enchilada, Taco, Tamales, you name it!
One thing I enjoy the most from salsa is…..you eat a whole lot and you won’t feel guilty afterwards. After all they are made from all the healthy ingredients. And what I love about it is that…it is sooo simple, and many times I wonder why I don’t make this a lot more frequent.
Maybe not many of you know, but tomato and chili originally came from South America. So It is only natural that they probably have a good recipe using those ingredients, and we definitely can learn something.
This is my intake for the MILD salsa, you can definitely play out with the level of heat. Tomato and salt are best friend forever, if you know what I mean. Add chilli, scallion, cilantro, garlic, and lime, well you have a party in your mouth – BOMB!
So without further ado, here we go:
- 4 ripe tomatoes, chopped
- 4 green chillies, chopped
- scallion, sliced thinly
- cilantro, chopped
- 1 lime, squeezed
- 1 garlic, grated
- Salt, this is important, because tomato love salt!
What are you talking about, JUST MIXED THEM!
Enjoy it with grilled chicken, fried rice, or just with chips!
