Salsa is one of the most obvious and easy snacks, especially when you can just pour it out of a jar or pick up a fresh batch from your local grocer. But wait! That salsa has onions in it! This situation comes up frequently; almost all salsas and guacamole contain onions, lots of fresh onions (the worst). Bummer. Have no fear, making your own salsa can be easy and will most certainly be fresher and taste better. We make a fresh salsa at least once a week. The recipe always varies slightly and is never disappointing. It’s actually much cheaper than buying a jar of salsa and you end up with a lot more if you make it yourself. You really can’t lose with this one. Here is an idea on how to make your own….
In this salsa we used :: 4 tomatoes, 1 medium cucumber, 1 yellow pepper & 1 red pepper, jalapeño, limes, salt, cilantro, garlic, and NO onions. Looks can be deceiving; the cucumber kind of looks like onion for those who are expecting it ;)
Dice up all of your ingredients into small bits. Combine tomato, cucumber, peppers, & cilantro. Then add your flavor enhancers to taste, jalapeño, garlic, salt & lime. Enjoy this refreshing snack.
