From Rick Bayless, 'Authentic Mexican.' If you're looking for an authentic Mexican salsa, this is it! It's so simple too! I only use one onion and two jalapenos when I make it, but I decided I'd post the original recipe instead of altering it. The way I make it produces a medium heat. I'd imagine making it his way would produce a hot salsa. I really like it with the lime juice. I haven't made it with the vinegar yet.
This recipe is a great reason for growing tomatoes and peppers in your garden. It was published in Chatelaine and I made a few small changes. Place a cup or two in freezer bags, press flat and freeze. Thaws quickly for snack attacks.
Refreshing! Light! Great way to use that last cob of grilled corn. Gives the dish a light smokey flavor. Good for picnics, camping,& pot luck. Makes a good side as well as a meal. Using it as a relish to top grilled salmon or tuna. Try dipping tortilla chips into it.
Simple and so delicious! If you have lots of plum tomatoes to use up from your summer's crop, but it's great to make at any time of year! This dish with robust flavours of garlic and basil make a fantastic side dish to any meal. Increase all ingredients if desired.
Very simple, very yummy. This is my favorite kind of cooking...just a few quality ingredients that really compliment each other. Adapted from Paola di Mauro, but given to me by my dad who is a sophisticated foodie who also appreciates simple tastes.
Prep time approx. 40 min (I found this in the May 2003 Canadian Living Magazine) This is a quick and easy recipe. Garlic becomes mellow when roasted,(so don't let 12 cloves scare you away) and roasting the tomatoes brings out the rich flavor. The two compliment each other. Using cherry tomatoes saves time so if you use other kinds of tomatoes it may take longer. I have two kids age 11 and 14 who love this recipe and always have more than one helping.
