chopped green bell pepper
minced fresh cilantro
fresh lime juice
chopped fresh jalapeno pepper (including seeds)
ground black pepper
Really good salsa; nice and fresh. EASY to make. I put everything in the food processor and it was done in a couple of minutes. I did use 2 jalepenos and that was a bit much. You may just want to use 1 of those!!
Fresh yes, but very bland. Made it as the recipe called and was enthused by the high rating. Disappointed in the end. A jar of salsa from the store at the end of the street would have been better.
I made this at the spur of the moment and did not have jalapenos, green bell pepper or fresh lime juice. I added a squirt of lemon juice and some chopped garlic and it was really good even with all of my changes!
I used veggies fresh from my own garden & boy did this make a difference! Very, very good AND super easy. Little spicy for youngsters.
Yumm!! I have been finding ways to use up all my tomatoes from my garden and this is my favorite. I have been canning left and right and by far this is the best and easiest salsa I have made. I have added garlic cloves. Everyone loves it.
Excellent recipe! I used the ingredients as a base, and sort of estimated & adjusted to taste. You really can personalize it, depending on what you like. I really enjoyed the flavor of the bell pepper in it, as I haven't made salsa with that before.
This is a very simple, easy, go-to fresh salsa recipe that is sure to taste good if you use fresh ingredients. Mine tasted great with almost all veggies from the garden. I eyeballed everything except the tomatoes (because I used cherry tomatoes and it was a little hard to tell how much I had). But seriously, just dump it all in a bowl and add ingredients until it looks right. It will taste fabulous! A note for those interested in canning, I think you might want something where you peel and boil the tomatoes, as most canning recipes for salsa that I've come across use that method.
I followed the recipe almost as directed except I added a little more jalapeno because I like everything spicy. This salsa is GREAT!! I was going to take it to the party we're going to tonight, but I am keeping it for myself. I was hesitant to use the cilantro, because I hate the way it smells, but I can't taste or smell it in the salsa. Cheryl, this recipe is amazing. Thank you!!
