Pro Tips by Neha
Try to dice the veggies in equal size pieces. This will give your salsa a neat look. You can use a mandolin slicer to do this job.
You can add tomatoes as well in the salsa. If adding, then remove as many seeds from tomatoes as possible.
You need the firm flesh and not the juice and the seeds.
Salsa tastes best when made fresh. You can let it rest for 30 minutes for the flavors to come together.
Never blend the salsa in a mixer. Always use a food processor to make it. If made it a mixer, it will turn into a puree.
