Salsa Fresca

This is the other salsa recipe I made for the Mexican-themed dinner we had with friends last month. I've been making this one for ages but never thought to take a picture to share with you guys.

Obviously this one is very different from the grilled salsa. This one is much lighter and chunkier. They're both delicious, just different. I think it was great to have both versions at the dinner. We had no problem inhaling both salsas and the guacamole.

Salsa Fresca
As seen in the Williams-Sonoma Mexican cookbook

1 lb. ripe tomatoes, cut into 1/4-inch pieces
1/3 cup finely chopped white onion
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1 jalapeno chiles, finely chopped (ribs and seeds removed if you want it less spicy)
2 teaspoons fresh lime juice
Sea salt to taste

In a bowl, toss together the tomatoes, onion, cilantro, chiles, and lime juice. Sprinkle with salt and toss again. Cover and let stand for 10 to 15 minutes to allow the flavors to mingle, then serve with your favorite chips.

Makes 2 cups.
