The Salsa That Made Me A Chef

This is an extremely clean and fresh tasting salsa. I have a few tricks that really set my salsa apart from the rest. Cutting the fruit away from the lime and adding to the mixture will give you a real burst of citrus flavor you dont normally get in salsa. Using stewed tomatoes will also add alot of depth to this dish.

Allowing the salsa to refrigerate overnight is crucial for flavor development. It will also thicken the salsa.

Also remember that all the heat comes from the seeds and ribs of the pepper, if you would like the flavor and not the heat, remove these before adding the pepper.

Making this salsa for a BBQ is what landed me my first catering job (even though there is no cooking required in this salsa).
