Spicy, refreshing salsa , perfect for a nacho evening !

Salsa is a Mexican salad dip usually eaten with nachos. The salsa can be made in 2 ways that is with grilled tomatoes, which gives the salsa a smoked flavour or using raw tomatoes. In this recipe, i have used raw tomatoes but if you choose to use grilled tomatoes, it’s perfectly fine too. I have also used capsicum here but it’s optional. The recipe is made using a food processor, which cuts down the prep time and eliminates the laborious task of chopping the veggies fine. You cannot use a blender here but only a food processor.Use pulse mode to get fine chops and refrigerate until cold . This dip is always served cold and so suits the scorching summers.
