colorful summer salsa
Sometimes I make salsa based on a craving for a spicy kick. Sometimes I just want to go fresh and light. Sometimes I want sweet and fruity. Sometimes roasted and caramelized.
And sometimes….I just want some fresh color!!! :)
Yes, I admit my method for making this one was literally — to see how many colors I can fit into one recipe! With so much beautiful, ripe, colorful produce to choose from this time of year, it definitely was not hard. And thankfully — since all of these ingredients go perfectly in salsa anyway, it turned out to be incredibly delicious! Definitely a yummy take on the lighter, fresher, chunkier side of salsa-making.
Cheers to eating colorfully!
Colorful Summer Salsa Recipe
- 1 red bell pepper, seeded and diced
- 1 orange bell pepper, seeded and diced
- 1 yellow bell pepper, seeded and diced
- 1 avocado, peeled, pitted and diced
- 1 jalapeno, stem removed, seeded and diced
- 1 lb. tomatoes, seeded and diced
- 1/2 cup corn kernels
- 1/2 red onion, diced
- 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
- 1/2 tsp. cumin
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- juice of one lime
Combine all ingredients together in a bowl, and stir until the lime juice and cumin are evenly distributed. Serve immediately.
If you’re making this more than an hour in advance, just be sure to wait until just before serving to add the avocado so that it doesn’t go brown.
