“This is a great salsa that has the heat of habanero and jalapeño peppers but because of the mint and ginger has a coolness to it. Big favorite around my friends.”
10 cup

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Drain the tomatoes for 15 – 30 minutes. Toss in the salt if you need to shorten the drainage time.
  2. Finely chop the onions, peppers, garlic and ginger root.
  3. Finely mince the mint and cilantro.
  4. In a food processor combine half the tomatoes and the other ingredients and pulse until well mixed but not pureed.
  5. In a large bowl combine all the ingredients and mix well.
  6. Let it sit in the fridge for a couple of hours.
  7. For the canned tomatoes use salt free.
  8. If you're feeling naughty double up on the habanero peppers. If you're really feeling naughty then double up on the jalapeños too.
  9. For the mint leaves if you're buying them in the packets then use 3.
  10. For the gingerroot you'll want one about the size of an egg.
  11. Optional ingredients I found nice were apple cider vinegar, honey, brown sugar or maple syrup. Not all at once but each one adds a unique background to the salsa.
