Spicy Salsa

Spicy Salsa

This salsa goes with most dishes. It has a spicy, tangy kick and we eat it with various meals and on it's own as a dip. The best tomatoes to use are vine-ripened, but any are fine. We also buy green bird-eye chillies from our local grocer and put them in the freezer, taking a few as and when needed.
