Yields: large bowl, to serve about 6
My mother Sally is a great cook, and has a way of making even simple dishes look and taste great.
I never used to put bell peppers in salsa, until mom started doing it. The different colored peppers add different flavors and levels of sweetness. This is SO great to keep around the house in big batches, especially with summer. I use it as a salad dressing, a dip or just to eat plain when I’m wanting to chew something. Try it for yourself!
4 large tomatoes
1 large sweet onion, or about 2 cups chopped onion
1 large orange bell pepper
1 large yellow bell pepper
2 cups chopped cilantro
½ tsp. ground black pepper
2 Tbs. lemon juice
½ Tbs. Celtic or Himalayan sea salt
Cayenne pepper, to taste
This is a meditative recipe- meaning, a lot of chopping. Dice the tomatoes, onion and bell peppers and add to a large mixing bowl. Chop the cilantro and add as well. Add the black pepper, lemon, sea salt and cayenne pepper, and adjust to taste. Serves about 6.
Love the simplicity
YUM! Thanks to Sally and Kimberly for sharing. 🙂
Just made some for gorilla wraps. I love this salsa. Thank you.
I love that you describe your mom’s recipe as “meditative”. How apt. . .I find chopping incredibly therapeutic especially when I make south east asian dishes, there is a WHOLE LOT OF THERAPY – absolutely FREE and an effective way to beat mental stress! Thank You Both…….
Love your recipes; but there is no “print” option and I have to copy and paste in order to print out.
Why is there no print option?
Copy and paste the recipe into a Word Document and then print. It prints beautifully that way.
I in joint you recipes
I will definitely be making this! You have helped me in so many ways on my journey to lose weight and find health and happiness with myself. You are a great inspiration! Are their any tips you have for meditation? I have never done it and would love to try 🙂
This recipe looks delicious! Though it’s very simple, I can’t wait to try it! I’m always looking for easy things to recommend to my clients as they begin to learn true principles about eating right. It can all feel so overwhelming in the beginning! Thanks for the simplicity.
Kimberly, I need to make this very very soon.
I am a huge fan of salsa and all of its yumminess. It is a great way to add vegetables in to your diet and flavor to your food.
The great thing about making your own salsa is that you are the judge of how spicy it is, or if you want a sweeter flavoring to it, and how fresh it is.
I love the thought of adding peppers to it. The color especially appeals to me, but I am sure it adds some sweetness and depth of flavor as well.
This on top of some chicken is going to be my dinner one night this week!
When I gave this salsa a shot I was wary, given there was no oil involved. I was, however, pleasantly surprised at the taste. It was filling, tasty and didn’t bog me down. It will keep for a day or two, but no longer; so I have to adjust the proportions of the ingredients accordingly which is easy enough to figure out. Overall, I have been mezmerized by the taste of the recipies from the two books. I have become addicted to the curried quinoa. I have lost weight and do not feel hungry, probably because I am slowing down and enjoying the taste as opposed to going for the full feeling.
Glad you liked it…it was one of my favorite snacks my mom would make growing up!
Yum! I have to try this! It sounds amazing.
P.S. I’m a big fan of your glowing green smoothie – I have it every morning! Thank you so much!
Thanks Larissa! Let me know how you like the salsa!
I’m definitely going to make this!!
DELICIOUS and NUTRITIOUS! <3 that's my motto lol
let me know how it turns out!
Kimberly, I really loved the Salsa. I made a big batch and put it in mason jars in the refrigerator and added some to my salad everyday. Wonderful!! I have a question — I made a batch of the Probiotic & Enzyme Salad, after one week, I opened the jar and the water began to slightly spew out just a bit. Is this normal? I put it in the refrigerator and am afraid to eat it until I know if this was to be expected when opening the jars. It was a bit like shaking a soft drink can just a little and then opening it.
I just made this and it is AWESOME! I will definitely make this recipe again! Thank you so much!
I look forward to making this salsa tonight! What do you recommend eating it with for a snack? I’m a lover of chips but I’m trying to do better 🙂
I have made this salsa twice now and LOVE it! I cannot get enough of it! Great recipe…thank you!
I made this and kept it in the refrigerator. It lasted about a month without growing hairy stuff. It looked and tasted great, but I was wondering if nutritionally it was any good to keep it that long?
