Indian Spiced Tomato Salsa

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Bonnie G 2

Found this in Food & Wine magazine, sounds easy and a little different salsa, that would go well with all kinds of grilled food. Described as chunky, tangy salsa, fragrant with garam masala the spice that includes coriander, cardamom and cumin. Can be made ahead and refrigerated for up to 3 days. Edited to reduce oil as recommended by reviewers

Hi Bonnie! We loved you salsa very much as fresh cilantro is one of my favorite herbs!
I used fresh plum tomatoes for this dish; they were really ripe and "sweet"!
Yum, my guests loved this with the naan bread very much!
Thanks a lot for this recipe.
