Tri colour Capsicums always attracted me when I went for grocery shopping but it used to be super expensive and I never felt like buying it. Recently Qatar has been growing a variety of veggies locally and hence we have been getting even expensive vegetables like Broccoli and coloured capsicums considerably cheaper. Also just see how fresh they are! 😍
So, whenever I get my hands on them, it’s either this salsa or fried rice. Both ways, it is consumed happily by my kids which is most important for me whenever I cook something. With salsa, I present it to them with nachos for evening snack and they munch it on happily. ❤️
Also, these capsicums are best when they are had raw with their flavours intact. Cooking them leads to make it soft and is not as fresh. So my preferable way to use these capsicums is by making this salsa which we have as an accompaniment with rice meals as well. Tastes so yum. ❤️
Hope you all try and love it too. Happy and healthy cooking ❤️

* The above measurement serves 4. If you are making for more people, just use three whole capsicums and about two tomatoes and two onions.
* You can skip green chillies if making for small kids. I remove green chillies before giving to my kids.
* You can also add a dash of red chilli powder for more spice but we love this as it is.
* I also serve it as a side along with rice meals and the salad gives a nice, fresh crunch to the meal.
