Easy Cinco De Mayo Salsa

Here is a quick and simple salsa that you can scoop with chips, pour over chicken, pile on top of tacos, mix into sour cream to spread on sandwiches, or turn into a Mexican twist on brushetta. Salsa (meaning "sauce" in Spanish) comes in many different ways, the most common being chopped tomatoes, onions and chiles.

Of course the fresher your ingredients the better the salsa.
Note: I have you chopping most of the ingredients...when I say this please try to do a small dice and keep everything around the same size cut...it just makes it easier to get a nice variety of the ingredients in each bite.

Super Easy Fresh Salsa

  • 4 ripe tomatoes seeded and chopped
  • 1/4 red onion, chopped
  • 1 jalapeno (minced smaller than everything else..also remove seeds if you do not like super hot salsa..if you do leave them in) you can use a serrano pepper if you prefer.
  • 8 cilantro sprigs, chopped
  • 2-4 garlic cloves, minced small (to taste)
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • zest of 1/2 lime
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
Taste as you go and adjust to what you like!  Mix everything in a bowl..let sit so flavors blend about 20 min
You could add roasted corn kernels, or  diced yellow pepper..or whatever you think sounds tasty!
Enjoy!!!
