Lycopene, an antioxidant found in tomatoes, protects the body's cells from free radicals. The capsaicin in the peppers stimulates the appetite, while the mix of tomatoes, onions, cilantro, lime juice and olive oil covers a wide range of vital substances.

This recipe is also known as "Salsa verde" which can easily be changed to a red salsa if you prefer red tomatoes.
