Notes

  • Be sure you dice your ingredients up into similar sizes. This makes it easier to eat. Also, make sure they’re diced into small pieces so you can get a taste of everything with each bite. However, if you like your salsa “chunky,” then leave some larger pieces. 
  • Fresh lime juice is key to this recipe. I promise that your salsa will taste much better with fresh lime. Please avoid the bottled lime juices as they lose that bright citrus tang and can end up tasting a little bitter due to the preservatives.
  • Do not forget to remove the seeds in your jalapeño pepper. Also be careful when doing so and wash your hands afterwards as the residue gives you “jalapeño hands” where your skin might feel like it’s burning and will hurt if you accidentally rub your eyes. You can also wear gloves when cutting jalapeño peppers to avoid it entirely.
