Fresh Salsa…

Standard

Helpful Hints

If you do not want to “roll” your lime you can microwave it for about 15 seconds or place it in a bowl of warm water for a few minutes and that will also help the juice release easier.

If you like a hotter salsa add a touch of cayenne pepper or crushed red pepper…I leave the amounts up to your taste buds.

If you aren’t as big of a fan of onion as our family is you can use less…use half of a medium onion rather than a large, you will still get the great flavor and nutrition, just less of the onion breath 🙂

We prefer sea salt, but regular salt works just fine.

As you see I used store-bought minced garlic, but you can also mince your own fresh garlic…couple nice sized cloves would be perfect.

Remember that your fresh salsa will not last as long as the preservative-packed salsa you purchase in jars from the store…so please enjoy while still fresh.
