A yellow tomato bell pepper salsa loaded with fresh garden vegetables. In this chunky salsa recipe you will find yellow tomatoes, red tomatoes, jalapeno, bell pepper, red onion, cilantro and lime juice. This colorful salsa is fresher and tastier then bottled salsa!
Again with the tomatoes. I know. But it’s the end of August beginning of September when all of a sudden the gardens are loaded with all types of fresh tomatoes! We had so many golden heirloom tomatoes in our garden this year. Every few days I have been picking several tomatoes, faster than I can eat them! This is also the case with jalapeños, so in order to use up some of these great veggies this recipe was created.
The flavor of this Tomato Bell Pepper Salsa is so fresh. Each bite is bursting with amazing tomato salsa flavor. The bell peppers add some body and color while the cilantro and jalapeno add flavor. Salsa is very easy to make and a big crowed pleaser, especially in my family.
This salsa recipe is chunky and more similar to a pico de gallo but it is so delicious when you scoop up a bite of everything on a chip! Remember, home-made salsa can be good for your wallet and even better for your health. Especially when your tomatoes come from your garden. When possible try making your own salsa, I think it’s worth the time and effort.
Not feeling a chunky salsa? Place all the ingredients in a food processor and give it a whirl, it will take a lot less effort and resemble restaurant style salsa.
