Mediterranean Salsa

Ingredients:

  • 3-4 medium sized tomatoes of choice, seeded and chopped (I used a couple heirloom and a couple roma)
  • 1 hothouse cucumber, seeded and diced (cut in half lengthwise and scoop out seeds with a small spoon)
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped red onion (about 1/4 of a red onion)
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • a mix of chopped fresh parsley and basil (about 1/3 cup)
  • 2 tablespoons of good olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon of balsamic vinegar
  • fresh ground pepper and kosher salt to taste

Optional add-ins:

  • crumbled feta cheese (this is great if you are serving it as a dip for pita chips!!)
  • chopped kalamata olives
  • diced avocado

Directions:

Combine all of the ingredients and mix well. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.
