Summer is the time for Salsa

I love salsa all year long, but in the summer there are a lot of fruits that you can add to your salsa to spice it up. Today, I used some apples and cantaloupe. It looks and tastes delicious.

Here is the recipe: Fruity Salsa

2 large tomatoes or 1 can tomatoes. Fresh works best!

1 cubed small onion

fresh spices of your choices. Cumin, parsley, basil, stevia, and sage ( I used fresh parsley, sage and basil which I chopped finely) You can also use prepared spices.

2  cubed green peppers

1 cubed orange pepper

1 clove garlic, chopped

2 apples 1/3 cup cantaloupe

Some cooks do not cook salsa at all, they just mix all the above ingredients and let sit in the refrigerator for a few hours before serving.

I like to simmer my garlic and onions first. Add the green peppers and 1 apple. I simmer for about 5 minutes, just to soften. I then let set for a few hours in the refrigerator.

I then add some raw ingredients to the softened mixture. Some cooks even take a cup of the simmered mixture, put in a blender and then re-add to the mix.

I like to add 1 raw apple, 2 more peppers and 1 cup of cantaloupe.

Then refrigerate for another 2 hours before serving on my favorite dishes.

 

Salsa, made with fresh fruit. A wonderful addition to any meal!
