Chunky Salsa

The more comfortable Dan gets in the kitchen, the more he is changing the recipes to adapt to our tastes.  This recipe was supposed to have hot salsa with grilled veggies, but instead we had an amazingly delicious cold salsa.  This works really well because I don’t love warmed bell peppers or warmed tomatoes.

So, we really enjoyed this recipe.  The downside (for me) is how caloric lamb is!  Gosh, tons of calories and fat.  I never want to stop eating the chop when I should to eat half of a serving, and I did actually eat a full serving of this, it was too good!
