Summer Salsa

READY IN: 1hr 40mins
Recipe by Diana 2

This is a thick and chunky salsa. Don't let the amount of peppers turn you off. This is a *mild* salsa. If you want more heat, just add some of the pepper seeds. I like my salsa chunky, but if you don't, you only need to dice the vegetables finely. Canned tomatoes makes this a quick recipe you'll want to make over and over. UPDATE Aug 18/08: I'm pleased to add that this salsa took first place in the local fair.

excellent recipe, well written, very easy to make, and tastes great! I forgot the garlic, and it still tastes great :) I used long green chillies from Woolies, (choice of chillies limited to long green and long red) I added a tablespoon of sugar, an italian friend said you must ALWAYS add sugar to tomatoes, and I do as I am told! I couldnt get tomatoes with herbs and things, but I decided to make it "au natural" and then see what herbs I would add next time. Maybe a teaspoon of italian herbs..............and the garlic:)
