Snacks, Starters, and Nibbles - Red and Green Salsa


Salsa...simply Spanish for sauce..which does not do justice to this stunning summer dish that I made for an early evening garden supper. Why anyone buys this from a supermarket I do not understand – they never taste anything like the home made variety. This is one of my takes on a common theme of toms and chillies. We had it with stacks of warm ciabatta and prosciutto.
