Fresh Tomato Salsa / Chunky Salsa / Salsa

Hope u had a wonderful weekend n mine also went smoothly and wishing my readers n friends a very pleasant n successful week ahead. After a hot hot sunny days today it drizzled and the weather was too good n everyone at home is sleeping after a wonderful n filling lunch with some spicy chicken curry n mild pulao, rasam n rice. So i got some time now for my blog, i couldn't be active like before due to some personal issues but i really inspired by friends' support n lovely comments. Thank you friends, so i don't want to leave my blog n blog buddies n decided to post some simple recipes. And this Salsa made with fresh tomato n other stuff is one such simple n easy to make recipe. I think this is loved by all group of people n can make it to their individual choice particularly the spice level. This recipe is also from the Natural Health Magazine, under the heading "Five Foods Which Gives u Instant Energy". I had already shared the first recipe under that heading, "Mixed Bean Corn Salad" and this Salsa is second n other three are Chinese Ginger Chicken Soup, Honey Salmon n Creamy Berry Salad. Will try to make it soon n share with u. I made very little changes to the original recipe, i did not add garlic Jalapeno, and also added cumin powder extra. My kids love Salsa n tortilla chips, particularly the one from Chipotle. So i often made this simple version for them. Now to the recipe...

  1. Tomatoes     4 large (finely chopped)
  2. Red Onion     1/2 medium (finely chopped)
  3. Jalapeno     1no. (seeded or leave in the seeds if u like it hot)
  4. Lime Juice    3 tbsp ( freshly squeezed)
  5. Cilantro       1/2 cup (finely chopped)
  6. Carrot    1 no. (finely chopped but i shredded)
  7. Olive Oil    1 tbsp
  8. Cumin Powder     1/2 tsp
  9. Freshly Ground Black Pepper      to taste
  10. Salt      to taste

  • Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl.
  • That't it...Serve With Tortilla chips.
First Thoroughly wash tomatoes, onion n cilantro before use.
If u want can refrigerate the salsa for 15 minutes n serve.
