Bell Pepper Salsa

Salsa doesn’t have to be made with tomatoes, nor does it even need fresh chiles. A quick and easy, delicious salsa to make to accompany steak and meat dishes is a bell pepper salsa, seasoned with red chile flakes, onions, and parsley, basil or arugula.

  • Prep: 5 minutes


  • 1 large bell pepper, stem and seeds removed, finely chopped
  • 6 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 Tbsp chopped arugula, basil, or parsley
  • 1/4 teaspoon red chile flakes
  • 2 Tbsp sherry vinegar or apple cider vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste


Combine all ingredients into a small bowl. Serve with steak, carnitas, or carne asada.
