Recipe by Chef Michael Callah

Everyone has their own take on salsa. Some like it chunky, while others prefer it smooth. Either way, this salsa is a very simple yet flavorful fresh Mexican-style recipe. Make this recipe your own by adjusting the individual ingredients as desired (especially the chili peppers and garlic). Serve Cal's Salsa Fresca as a compliment to tacos, burritos, etc., or just serve as a dip for tortilla chips. Note: To make ahead, prepare your ingredients the day before, and keep all the items separate. When ready, assemble the ingredients about 20 minutes before serving, giving you time to refrigerate as noted in the directions.
