Most tomato salsas are made with uncooked tomatoes, and delicious just the way they are, but roasting some of them concentrates the sugars and flavors. And then when the two are combined you get the freshness of the raw tomatoes, and the depth of the cooked ones. Not a bad layering of flavors. You need to add very little else to make this salsa amazing –skip the olives if they aren’t your thing. Use any combo of tomatoes that you have available to you. Fabulous with tortilla chips, of course, or piled on bruschetta. Also perfect alongside grilled swordfish, or chicken, or a steak.
