Never heard of a Salsa without tomatoes....just wondering??? I would make the salsa without the vinegar and put tomatoes instead but I will go ahead and try this one out for the heck of it.
Actually, there are no tomatoes listed on purpose! My hubby won't eat tomatoes, but loves the flavors of the herbs, and heat of the peppers, so that is why there are none listed in the ingredients! :)
This is a great little salsa, with really good flavor *and* heat! I did not have habaneros, so I used about 6 Thai chili peppers instead (since they are smaller, lol). I am sure it would be much hotter with the habaneros, but as it was, it really had a balanced heat. I would *not* try to do this by hand -- the fumes alone were enough the make my eyes water. We used this as a condiment to fondued meat, and it was a big hit.
