{October 29, 2008}   Cilantro Lime Salsa Recipe

My 3rd tomato based recipe for Attack of the Killer Tomatoes week is Cilantro lime salsa. I love this salsa. I really think it’s the lime that makes this one so goo.

1 big ripe juicy tomato, or two medium, or three small.
About 2 tablespoons of finely chopped white onion.
1 tablespoon of finely chopped cilantro.
A little bit of chopped fresh chile. (Add a little and taste, if you want it spicier, add more.)
1/4 of a lime.

Chop the tomato and add it–juice skin and all–to a mixing bowl.
Add the chopped onion, chile and cilantro.
Squeeze your lime quarter into the mixture.
Add a pinch of salt and taste,

This salsa is all about balance, so taste it and think about whether the sour and the spicy and the savory are all in balance. You can add more lime juice, salt or chile to harmonize the flavors.
That’s it. A very simple yet tasty salsa.

Have you ever tried green tabasco sauce in your salsa? I swear by the stuff.
