This is my original recipe for a fresh salsa. It can be made milder by seeding the jalapenos, or hotter by adding more. Note: Instructions have been corrected!
- 2 garlic cloves, peeled
- 1 small red onion, peeled and halved
- 2 jalapeno peppers, quartered
- 2 sprigs fresh cilantro, stems removed
- 1 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1 teaspoon lime juice
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
- 2 large beefsteak tomatoes, coarsely chopped
- Place garlic, onion, jalapenos, cilantro, oregano, lime juice, salt and pepper in bowl of food processor. Pulse until onion and jalapenos are coarsely chopped.
- Remove to a bowl and stir in tomatoes. Mix well. Chill for 1/2 hour to blend flavors.
We lolved the light salsa very much.
I used sweet 2 long red peppers and chili instead of jalapeno and I added to the recipe some fresh champignons mushroom and I seved it like a salad to eat with fresh bread.
The mix of herbs and lime juice was perfect! Thanks offering this recipe!
This is a nice salsa I made with cayenne pepper powder to taste instead of jalapeno peppers. I did add the oregano but no where does it say to add it! I used freshly squeezed lime juice and sea salt, and followed the rest. Made for 1~2~3 Hits ~ December 2010.
Great salsa fresca! I used one jalapeno and 1 habenero, because we like it hot! Instead of dried oregano, I took advantage of all the fresh I have growing. Used 2 tablespoons chopped leaves. Easy to put together.
