HAPPY HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

So this salsa recipe happened by accident. I wasn’t meaning for this post to happen…I was just trying to make a simple salsa to watch the Chiefs game. When I went into the pantry, I didn’t have any cilantro or lime juice, two of my most needed ingredients for fresh salsa. I was still craving a healthy tomato based dip…so I had an idea. What if I substituted balsamic vinegar for lime juice, and basil and garlic for cilantro??

The results were easy and tasty, and this Italian salsa recipe was born.

This Italian Salsa works great as a dip with chips, or also is super tasty on top of bread as a bruschetta topper. With only 5 ingredients (plus salt and pepper to taste), you can’t go wrong. I know I’ll still make traditional Mexican salsa, but I’m pretty hooked on the Italian version as well!

  • tortilla chips or pita chips
Instructions
