Limetree's Simple Salsa

Updated: Apr 5, 2021

Makes 1 quart of salsa. The key is to make and eat fresh!

5 ripe tomatoes

I medium size red onion

1 lime, juiced

Handful fresh cilantro

Chili peppers (your choice. Jalapenos are traditional, 1 should do it)

Salt to taste

Chop or puree tomatoes.

Finely chop onion, chili peppers and cilantro.

If you don't have chili peppers, a half teaspoon of cayenne pepper will do.

Add lime juice and mix everything together.

Add salt to taste and secret ingredient – a teaspoon of maple syrup to bring out the flavors. Let sit for at least an hour.

Overnight refrigerated is even better.


Optional: add a cup of dices or pureed mango or pineapple for a tropical flare.
