Zesty Salsa with Preserved Lemons
From EatingWell: January/February 2011
Preserved lemon adds a tart twist to traditional fresh tomato salsa. Scoop it up with tortilla chips or use it as a topping for grilled fish tacos. For this recipe, you can use the yellow peel and/or the pulp from a preserved lemon. Just be sure to rinse the lemon well before using and remove any seeds from the pulp.
- 2 medium tomatoes, diced
- 1/4 cup finely diced rinsed preserved lemon peel and/or pulp
- 4 scallions, thinly sliced
- 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
