- * 4 large ripe tomatoes,
- * 1 medium onion, finely diced
- * 1 small green bell pepper, seeds and veins removed, minced
- * 1-2 hot peppers like habaneros, jalapenos or Serrano’s, depending on taste (finely chopped)
- * ½-1 cup cilantro, finely chopped
- * 2 cloves garlic, minced
- * ½ - 1 TBSP fresh lime juice, depending on taste
- * ¼ teaspoon fine sea salt
- * 1 TBSP olive oil (optional)
- * Note: Use fresh organic ingredients only
- Chop all vegetables by hand; it gives you more control over the size and shape plus it gives you a much better display
- If running short on time, use a food processor to chop the cilantro and garlic. Never use a food processor to chop onions, it pulverizes the onion and releases too much juice and overpowers the fresh salsa
- Mix the ingredients thoroughly. Gently with your hands, squeeze some of the tomatoes to release it full flavor. Be careful not to squish all the tomatoes so that you have a nice display
- Cover the bowl and refrigerate for at least 2 hours to get full flavor.
- Serve at room temperature or cold, depending on preference
