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.
