I attempted to make my own salsa because, I eat ALOT of salsa. I didn’t follow a recipe or measure. The ending result was tomato gazpacho, which coincidentally I have always wanted to make, but never knew how! Here is my version of a recipe, use it for inspiration.

4 cans of chopped tomatoes with juice ( or 4 cups of fresh chopped tomatoes )

2 tablespoons of lime juice

2 tablespoons of lemon juice

1 can of corn

1 can of peas

3 table spoons of red pepper

3 table spoons of black pepper

1/2 teaspoon of sea salt.

1/2 cup of fresh basil (chopped )

Mix it all together, refrigerate. Serve over warm corn chips, tortillas, or romaine lettuce with olive oil and black beans.
