Tomato Salsa with Baked Pita Chips

Tomato Salsa with Baked Pita Chips

(vegan, nut free)

This homemade tomato salsa is so fresh and only takes 5 minutes to make. All you have to do is blend everything together in a small food processor and blender (and if you don’t have food processor or blender, just chop everything and mix it in a bowl). Pairs perfectly with baked pita chips (that are as easy as cutting and baking pita bread).
