4. Salsa

Tomato season is drawing near, and there is nothing as fabulous as homemade salsa. It’s also extremely easy to make. Granted, it doesn’t last long in the fridge, but then again, how could something so tasty ever last long? I usually eye-ball the ratios, depending on how many tomatoes I have. The amount of spice depends on the amount of jalapeno you use. Start conservatively, and add more to taste.  Here’s what you need:

Ingredients

  • 2-3 ripe tomatoes, diced
  • about 1/2 red onion, chopped small
  • 1/2 to 1 jalapeno, minced
  • 1 garlic clove, minced (optional)
  • Juice of 1/2 to 1 lime
  • Handful of cleaned cilantro leaves, chopped small
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Preparation

Combine all ingredients. Taste and adjust seasoning. Serve with tortilla chips.
