silver bowl of salsa surrounded by avocado, jalapeno and herbs on black board

This recipe is really easy to make because it can all be combined in a mini food processor or blender. Just give the veggies a quick chop on the cutting board, and then toss them in the chopper and pulse to your desired consistency.
