Salsa (a Spanish condiment made up of tomatoes, onion, cilantro, peppers, and whatever else the salsa creator desires) has always been the number one addition to foods in my repertoire. I love salsa so much, that I even eat it like a salad. In my personal opinion (because this is a blog and I get to tell you my opinion) the best salsa is fresh, homemade pico de gallo; the more minimalistic, the better. But why salsa? Well, mainly because salsa is a healthy and delicious alternative to ketchup and many other condiments that can mask, instead of enhancing, the flavors of hamburgers or other foods.
The following is my own recipe for this delicious meal addition.
3 large tomatoes
1 bunch cilantro
1/2 large onion (or 1 small onion)
2 jalapeno peppers
2 small limes
Dice tomatoes and onion. Seed and dice the jalapeno as shown in the video here. Roughly chop cilantro. Mix in a large bowl to combine vegetables. Add juice from the limes. Add salt, black pepper to taste. Stir and refrigerate for half an hour for flavors to combine.
Ideas for this recipe include, but are not limited to:
