Simple Roasted Red Pepper Salsa

If you have never made your own salsa then you are missing out on one of life's simple pleasures.

- 1 small onion, finely diced
- juice of one lime
- 1 roasted red pepper, cooled, seeded and skinned, and diced
- 3 tomatoes, seeded, and finely diced
- 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced
- 1/4 cup finely chopped cilantro
- salt and pepper (optional)

1. Put onion in a bowl and add lime juice. Let sit for a few mins. Add in red pepper, tomatoes (you can skin them if you want, but I never bother), jalapeno pepper, and cilantro. Mix well.
2. You can add a bit of salt, if you want, but it will draw the water out of the tomatoes and make the salsa more watery.

I LOVE making my own salsa - 100x better than store-bought! I like your roasted red pepper version!

Oh, I would love to cook this! the problem is... when I have the roasted peppers I can't help but eat them right away with olive oil...

When I was younger, I used to cook at this cool little vegetarian cafe. One of the things I made every day was salsa. Somehow I've forgotten about that and haven't made my own in a long time. Shame on me. Yours looks great. I'm going to try it.
