Tomato salsa recipe with step by step photos – tangy and spicy Mexican tomato salsa.

tomato salsa recipe

One more favorite salsa recipe of mine after Mango salsa And Sweet corn salsa. the tangy juicy tomatoes, the spicy chilies, the sourness of the lemon juice, the mild sweetness & pungency of onions and the refreshing aroma of coriander leaves – all come in one bowl.

I have used green chilies in the recipe. Instead of green chilies, you can use jalapenos. Also you can add green chilies, which are less hot or medium hot. The salsa recipe serves 1, but you can also make a large batch for a party. Just increase all the ingredients proportionally.

Tomato salsa is quick to prepare. you can serve it as an appetizer or condiment along with the main course. Or else you can serve it as a dip with some crackers or nachos.
