Top Review by Andi of Longmeadow

Had this with pita bread, and dipped the deliciousness right in the vat of goodness! Man, so simple but what a pow of taste. I *increased* the cayenne pepper, as I prefer tastes extremely hot, but I am sure this would be as tasty with the normal amount. I grabbed some fresh mint from the garden instead of dried and this was over the top of fabulous! I halved this easily. Made for ZWT 6 Zee Zesties!

Directions

  1. Cut the stalks out of the tomatoes. Put them in a bowl and pour over boiling water to loosen their skins. Peel away the skins, remove the seeds and finely dice the flesh.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a pan over a medium heat. When hot, add the tomatoes and garlic. Cook, stirring frequently, for 5 minutes.
  3. Add the cayenne pepper and dried mint. Season with salt and cook for another 5 minutes, stirring. By now, the tomatoes should have lost all their excess liquid. Taste and adjust the seasoning if necessary.
  4. Serve the tomato salsa at room temperature.
