Authentic Fresh Salsa

Authentic Fresh Salsa

This recipe comes from an old friend. She knew very well how to make authentic Mexican food and as a kid I would stand on a stool and watch over her shoulder, or across the table, as she chopped the tomatoes, diced the cilantro and jalapeno, and squeezed the lime juice into a bowl. She would have me taste, as a I do now, until it reached the perfect tangy and salty flavors. No need for powdered seasonings; the fresh ingredients is what makes this, and now it’s our favorite salsa recipe; simple, but oh so delicious. Serve with your favorite chips and as a side to your Mexican dinner nights. Enjoy!

What you’ll need:

  • 2-3 large heirloom tomatoes (or whatever you have growing), diced
  • 1/2 red onion, skinned and diced
  • large handful of fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 1-2 jalapeno peppers, minced
  • Juice of 2 limes
  • Sea salt to taste

Note: Add a diced avocado for a quick pico de gallo

Process:

  1. Prep your vegetables by cutting appropriately and combine everything in medium sized bowl.
  2. Mix well to incorporate; add salt if needed. Serve immediately or after chilling in the fridge.
