This fresh tomato salsa fresca beats store bought salsa any day. It is super easy to whip up as an appy or to bring to a party. Be warned, the jalepeno and chili peppers give quite the kick so use wisely. Unfortunately I decided not to wear gloves while chopping the peppers and I still have hot burning hands…please wear gloves!
What you need:
- 8 Roma tomatoes
- 1/4 cup of chopped green onion
- 1/2 of an onion (chopped)
- 2 diced Jalapenos
- 2 diced chili peppers
- 6 cloves of garlic
- 1/4 cup of olive oil
- juice of two limes
- 2 tblsp of cilantro
- salt to taste
- Take your chili pepper, green onion,garlic,oil,lime juice,salt and cilantro and blend in a mortar & pestle to create a yummy oil infusion mixture.
3. Put your salsa fresca in a pretty bowl on a platter of chips and eat it up!
