There are tons of salsas out there, but I haven't found one exactly like mine. (I don't like the taste of lime or lemon juice. It's similar to pico de gallo I guess.) Do yourself a favor and find authentic Mexican chips from a local restaurant to go with this! Can't beat the taste. :) Can spice this up if you want, I do this for my bf, just add some cayenne to the mix! I love this so much I can eat half the bowl in one sitting!!
- Wash and dice tomatoes, peel and cut onion, peel and mince garlic or do what I do and use the already minced garlic (1 tsp.)!
- In a small bowl combine garlic, onion and tomatoes with cilantro, salt, and pepper (or garlic pepper salt). Stir with a spoon and mash a little, this will make it juicy, and as it sits it'll get juicer.
- Enjoy with chips or add to entrees for flavor/side dip!
We loved this salsa, MissJennifer! It's so simple to prepare and was delicious, refreshing and fresh. I made it as written (made no changes), and it was exactly what salsa should be. I made it to top our roasted chicken breasts to go along with your Mexican Rice, and it gave the chicken a wonderful Mexican touch. We used the remaining salsa later as a snack to go with our tortilla chips. Made for the Spring 2014 Pick-A-Chef event.
Quick and delicious. I used a vidalia onion(yum); diced the onion quite small; minced the garlic very fine (to circulate the flavor); used two tablespoons of cilantro. When in a hurry and even when not, you will love this recipe.
This was so delicious. I was making Chicken Fajita Pizza (30021) and wanted a salsa that would be really good. This was excellent. I also used the pre-minced garlic. Also, I never seem to have fresh cilantro, but I use dried cilantro leaves, so I only used one tablespoon. Also, for the garlic salt I used Lawry's garlic salt...that is the best for good garlic salt flavor. Great recipe!!!
