I Learned Something New: Kachumbari
A few weeks ago, one of my awesome sister friends celebrated her birthday with great people and great food. One of those awesome dishes was an African dish, named kachumbari. If made with the freshest ingredients, this dish will sure to be a hit. We diced onions, tomatoes, cucumbers, and green peppers. Cilantro was diced and limes were juiced. As you have read, the ingredients put you in the mind of pico de gallo. This African dish is packed with veggies when cucumbers and green peppers are added. Cucumbers gives this dish a refreshing taste.
I cheated and added an extra vegetable. I added green zucchini to my kachumbari. This delectable dish is awesome with your favorite tortilla chips or rice.
3 large red tomatoes NOTE: I used large plum tomatoes.
1 green pepper
1/2 red onion
1/4 cup fresh chopped cilantro
