Recipe for :

Italian Tomato Salsa

This recipe comes from Chef Brian Johnson who lives in Eden Prairie, Minnesota. He has been in the food service business for over twenty years, and is currently working at General Mills for Aramark as the Catering Chef. He graduated from French Culinary School in the late 1980's and has since worked at restaurants, country clubs, hotels and a health spa.

"This salsa recipe was created for my Wild Mushroom Salad recipe <click here>. The simple Italian flavors of balsamic vinegar, basil and olive oil make this an excellent salsa for fish, chicken and of course my Wild Mushroom Salad".


1 1/2 cups diced fresh roma tomatoes
1/4 cup diced red onion
2 tablespoons fresh minced basil
1/2 tablespoon fresh minced garlic
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
salt and pepper to taste

  • Combine all ingredients together and toss well in a bowl
  • Let sit for at least 30 minutes before serving.

Makes just over 1 1/2 cups salsa
