This is without doubt the best Salsa i've ever made, although I omitted the bread as my son is gluten intolerant.

I made this last night to accompany fajitas, it was a perfect addition and delicious! I left out the bread as I didn't feel it was needed. I roasted fresh peppers instead of using ones from a jar. It was quick and easy to prepare. I will definitely be making this again, thank you :-)

I left out the bread because I used a 100g of fresh red pepper instead of from a jar so it wasn't as wet. The flavour went really well with the spicy turkey meatballs (also on this site).

I haven't used the bread and I did use a small red onion, roughly chopped to go into the food processor with everything else. I've just tested a small sample and it is absolutely delicious. It'll be going with the Falafel Burgers also on this site, later on today! This is definitely my go-to recipe for Salsa now - so much nicer than the bought stuff!!

Could anybody possibly tell me whether this recipe is suitable for a celiac please?

I skip the bread too, and it's delicious. It's quite watery (which I suppose is exactly why the bread is there in the first place) but I just sort of drain it off.

I also add a sprinkle of chilli flakes to give it a bit of a kick!! Ecxellent low fat dip!!

Put an extra chilli in, It'll blow your mind. Not for the faint hearted... Quick and easy.

Simple but effective. I added a sprinkle or two of some chilli flakes as it wasn't quite hot enough.
