My most requested party snack! Easily made and easily doubled! If you prefer mild salsa, only use 1 jalapeno and/or do not add the seeds. Prep time does not include chill time. If you don't chill it overnight, the flavors won't mix and it won't be very juicy(although it still tastes great). *TIP* Use scissors instead of a knife for the cilantro, it's MUCH easier!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Seed and dice tomatoes in a large bowl.
  2. Add onion, jalapenos, and garlic.
  3. Finely chop cilantro and add.
  4. Toss the mixture and squeeze the lime over it.
  5. Season with salt and pepper to taste (tasting is a must!).
  6. Mix once more and chill overnight for best results.

Salsa...the dance of intimate passion and addiction. Oh. Wrong kind of 'hot' salsa. Still addictive. Made for PAC Fall '09
