Savory Salsa

Submitted by: 2PENNY1

Introduction

I've found most UK salsas to be fairly sweet, which I don't particularly like. So, if you're like me, and want a mild savoury salsa for all sorts of dipping and dolloping, here's a really easy one.

Directions

Gently heat oil on bottom of pot
Add onion and garlic, let soften
Add tomato and vinegar- this is a good time to taste to decide how much vinegar you actually want to use.
Increase heat
Add green pepper and let simmer a while before adding the jalapeños.**
Add cilantro after the sauce has reduced a while, and salt to taste. Let cool and/or chill before serving.
------------------------------------
**The jalapeños determine how hot your salsa will be. Beware, you can't tell how hot a chilli is by looking at it, so whatever you choose, have a little nibble first. My tried and tested favourite for mildness is Mezzetta deli sliced tamed jalapeños, but I've only ever seen them in Waitrose. Choose the amount you use based on how hot the chilli is.
