This tangy homemade salsa, made with fresh from the garden vegetables, is so delicious, and versatile! For example, it can be served hot as an accompaniment to barbeque, or a topping for grilled salmon, or as an appetizer with tortilla chips. It's the perfect salsa for those with a genetic aversion to cilantro because you may choose to use parsley or basil instead (we like using both parsley & basil.) If you like things spicier, try adding some of your favorite hot peppers. We love it, hope you do too!
