chopped fresh cilantro
salt to taste
jalapeno pepper, minced
This is a great recipe for Fresh Salsa! I cut way back on the onion and garlic, doubled the lime juice, and threw in half of a chopped cucumber. This is heavenly on bean tacos! I like to supplement the spiciness with bottled hot taco sauce.
This salsa lacked something - I served when guests came over and everyone agreed it just wasn't very good. I ended up throwing it away.
This is the quintissential salsa recipe. The cool tomatoes contrast nicely against the spicy jalapenos and pungent onion, and the lime juice and salt round out the flavors nicely. Let it sit overnight to really let the flavor develop.
I went to a party last week and a friend of mine brought a dip similar to this one, and after trying it I had to make it. I came here and found this recipe. It has been a week and I've made this dip twice! I must admit that they weren't the same recipe, this one is actually better! The garlic and jalapenos give it quite the kick, and my family is in love with Cilantro, so this is the perfect recipe!
Good, basic salsa recipe. Actually, more like pico de gallo than salsa, but you could always put in food processor. We like this recipe just the way it is - it is chunky and full of flavor. I'm not sure about the exact measurements because I usually just "eyeball" amounts, but the ingredients compliment each other well.
This salsa is mostly onion, and very strongly so. The cilantro is very strong, too. It would be better if these two ingredients were reduced by about half, and maybe more tomatoes used.
My whole family loved this recipe. It was so easy, and only took minutes
This is the recipe I was searching for! It turned out great. I ended up using the entire pepper as I thought the heat needed to be turned up.
