Tomato salsa- the Italian way

Salsa is mostly defined as a spicy sauce having tomatoes, onions and chilli to accompany Mexican foods like nachos.

Salsa is also a apt!

You can dance around with the ingredients and make salsa to your liking, just like Mark Bittman

Here is a little something which I made over weekend with Foccacia bread.

You need:
  • Tomatoes- 3, chopped
  • Parsley- 2 Tbsp , chopped 
  • Olive oil- 2 tsp
  • Vinegar- 1 Tbsp
  • Black Pepper- 1 tsp, crushed
  • Kosher salt - to taste

How to
  1. Pour oil in a flat pan. 
  2. Add chopped tomatoes (you can de-seed them if u like. it'll change the texture a bit)
  3. Add the parsley.
  4. Sprinkle salt and pepper. Mix and cook for a minute.
  5. Add vinegar. Simmer and cook till its mushy, but still chunky.
Serve at room temperature.

PS: my mom would call it a simple chutney but Rose would smell sweet even if it was called by some other name.
