Salsa pictured over grilled tri tip steak.
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.

- 2 tablespoons chopped arugula, basil, or parsley
