Diced, minced and chopped veggies and herbs - tomatoes, peppers, onion, garlic and cilantro, are stirred and given a splash of lime juice. That 's it. You can make it mild or hot depending on the number of bits of jalapeno pepper you add.
INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):
- 4 large tomatoes, diced
- 1/2 large onion, minced
- 3 cloves garlic, chopped
- 2/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro
- 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced
- 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
- salt to taste
In a small mixing bowl, combine tomatoes, onion, garlic, cilantro and lime juice. Add jalapenos 2 teaspoons at a time, tasting after each addition to see how hot the salsa has become. Jalapeno peppers vary in heat, so it is important to taste the salsa to ensure you do not make it too hot to handle. Salt to taste. Enjoy!
