Norma's Just A Pinch of This & That Chunky Salsa/Bruschetta
Well this is called "Just A Pinch" So here I go again. I went out to my garden and found yellow tomatoes, red tomatoes, cucumbers and green peppers. So I brought them into the house and decided to make something out of all this. I chopped what I had and added some other veg's I had in the frig. I poured from a bottle of special herbed oil that I bought when I was on vacation in Washington State at a farmers market.So here we go guys and gals. I didn't measure one thing while making this. It made such a big bowl I gave some to my next door neighbor and she loved it.
