Notes

Our first visit to the local farmers' market, and a farmer gave Dave a free bag of "sweet" green peppers. Sweet indeed - with a gentle kick of spice! And Dave was hooked. He thought, mixed with some cooling corn, this would make a delicious, delicate salsa dip for our organic corn chips!

This recipe is for a basic salsa dip base - free to tweek to your tastes! Add more garlic or more hot pepper; perhaps add in a mango; sprinkle with a dash of salt or some daring cayenne. And enjoy!
