10 Minute Zesty Salsa

The view from our mountain home includes Pike's Peak, so we frequently dine on our wraparound porch in good weather. During family get-togethers, we often savor this salsa with chips while we feast on the natural beauty all around us.

    Flavor is much improved with a squirt of lemon juice or lime juice & a small can of diced green chile. I didn't use oil inthis recipe which makes it even more healthy

    So, I tried made this today for my boyfriend and I for our 6 month anniversary and I used it as an appetizer for dinner with my family. Everyone loves it and I personally think it is the best salsa I have ever tasted.
