sweet pepper salsa

I made this simple salsa for a BBQ. I chose to remove the seeds from the jalapeno because there were going to be some kids at the BBQ and I wanted it to be mild enough for anyone to enjoy. If you like your salsa hot, leave the seeds in!


3 heirloom tomatoes, seeds removed and finely chopped
3 green onions, finely chopped
1 jalapeno, seeds removed and finely chopped
7 sweet gypsy peppers, seeds and white ribs removed and finely chopped
3 Tbsp lime juice
2 Tbsp chili powder
salt, pepper to taste
1/2 bunch cilantro, chopped, for garnish

Just mix all the ingredients together in a large bowl and refrigerate for at least 1 hour so all the flavors meld together. The salt will cause the tomatoes to release a lot of moisture, so you may want to strain or pour off any excess liquid.
