Salsa: fresh from the garden

Disclaimer: I haven't made this yet. I found it in our wellness newsletter and decided to copy it for my collection. I didn't plan cilantro, but I can buy some at the farm market. I did plant green bell peppers, jalapeno chili peppers, and (of course) tomatoes. We always have onion in the produce drawer.

The best part is the last line: "Modify to your liking!" As always, I welcome your suggestions. Avocado, perhaps? Black beans? Bring it on, bloggy friends!

Fresh Salsa
2 Ripe Tomatoes (diced)
2 Green Bell Peppers (diced)
1 White Onion (diced)
Fresh Cilantro
1 Tablespoon Lemon Juice
1 Jalapeno Chili Pepper (diced)

Combine all ingredients and chill in the refrigerator. Modify the ingredients to your liking!

That sounds a lot like my salsa recipe, except that I don't use green pepper and I add some cumin powder. It's delicious!

Lime juice and a little salt. Have you tried to make a sweet salsa? We do one with mangos and asian pears. MUD

Mmm...black beans, definitely, and maybe some corn. The cilantro would be great!
