I N G R E D I E N T S:

  • 5 large tomatoes -- chopped
  • 1/2 cup green onions (or yellow onion) --chopped
  • 1 1/2 tbsp. jalepeno (or to taste) -- veined, seeded and chopped**
  • 1 tbsp. lime juice
  • 1/2 small bunch cilantro -- chopped
  • Salt and pepper to taste

**CAUTION: The oil from pepper skins can burn your eyes or skin. Wear gloves or wash your hands after handling hot peppers.

Combine all ingredients and refrigerate.

Makes: 3 cups

For a New Mexican Salsa replace the jalepeno chilis with green chilis.

Tip #1: Prepare Salsa a few hours to a day ahead. This gives the flavors a chance to "mingle".
Tip #2: I am not a big fan of cilantro so I lose most or all of the cilantro and add 1 minced garlic toe. Experiment with your own variations.
The great thing about a good basic tomato salsa recipe is that it is as delicious as it is easy, and it only gets better as you spice it up with your own ideas and additions! It is hard to add the "wrong" ingredient or quantity of that ingredient, if you start by adding a small amount. Give it a try, you might just have the salsa dip recipe that everyone is asking about. Welcome to our kitchen.
