10 Minute Zesty Salsa Recipe

The view from our mountain home includes Pike's Peak, so we frequently eat on our wraparound porch in good weather. During family get-together, we often savor this zippy 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"
