Nepali Peanut Salsa

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Clay in Iowa

My wife and I ran into this recipe on one of our trips to Nepal. It's simple to make and surprisingly good. While it's good as written it can be easily adjusted to taste. I like more tomato (2 or 3) and jalapenos in mine (2 or 3). This is best made an hour or two before it's needed but will keep for 6-8 hours in the frige.

I went to a Nepali pot-luck last night and brought this salsa. It was fabulous! Super easy to make, too. This one's a keeper for sure.
