Brazilian

After I graduated from high school, I took a year off and lived in Brazil for a few months as an exchange student. It was an experience I will never forget! The culture is amazing, the people are so nice, and the food is mouth watering! Yes, I gained like 15lbs while I lived there and can never look at those photos again, but every pound was worth it. I still find myself craving certain foods I ate while living there. 

This salsa is just one of them. We would eat this with everything and everywhere. I wish I knew the Brazilian name for the salsa but I just can't remember it. It was a staple at every churrasco (bbq) and we ate it with chips, pão de queijo (little cheese rolls), over lamb or any type of meat. You name it, we probably ate this with it. With Brazil playing for the World Cup today I thought I would pay tribute to the country and share this recipe with all of you.  (full recipe with measurements at bottom of post)
6 ingredients is all that is needed- Red Bell and Green Bell pepper, onion, tomato, olive oil, and white wine vinegar.
Chop everything up to about 1/4 inch
Add vinegar and olive oil and mix well.
Enjoy!
Super simple right? And it's so yummy! So go cut some veggies and mix some up for your next party or evening :)

Sorry I've been MIA this week. Sometimes life is so fun and enjoyable that things get pushed aside for a few days. I've been working hard in the office during the day and enjoying this gorgeous weather every evening. So I'm sorry, I hope you've missed me and I will return with more fashionable posts next week. I hope you all have a gorgeous and wonderful weekend!

¼ cup white wine vinegar.
