Fresh Tomato Salsa
Easy and delicious fresh tomato salsa with onions, jalapenos, and cilantro
6 medium-large ripe tomatoes
1 large sweet onion
a handful of fresh cilantro
juice of 1 fresh lime OR 1/2 fresh lemon
2-3 fresh jalapeno peppers
salt to taste, optional
1. Wash, core, and dice tomatoes. Chop onion and cilantro.
2. Finely chop the fresh jalapeno peppers. For less heat, you can remove the seeds and ribs of the jalapenos. Jalapenos vary in heat so I like to add smaller amounts and taste, to avoid making salsa that is too hot for my tastes. :)
3. Combine the tomatoes, onions, jalapenos, cilantro, and lemon or lime juice. Allow to rest for 30-60 minutes for flavors to combine. Add salt if desired. Serve with corn tortilla chips or with your favorite Mexican foods (tacos, burritos, nachos, pinto beans, etc.).
Use within a couple days for best taste. :)
15 minutes, plus 30 minutes for flavors to combine
I love fresh tomato salsa! This recipe is very forgiving and adaptable. Feel free to adjust the amounts of onions, cilantro, and jalapenos to suit your tastes! :)
