Prep Time:15 mins
Total Time:15 mins
Yield:4 to 81x
1 pound of ripe tomatoes – I used 4 medium sized tomatoes – diced
1/3 cup red onion, finely diced.
1/2 jalapeño pepper – finely minced – use more if you like your salsa spicy!
1 ripe avocado, removed from peel and diced.
1/4 cup finely chopped cilantro
1 lime – squeezed – about 2 tbs of lime juice
1 tbs olive oil
A pinch of sea salt.
Dice tomatoes and put in a fine meshed strainer to drain as you prep the rest of the ingredients.
Dice red onion and place in a little bowl of water to reduce the raw onion taste.
Cut jalapeño pepper in half and remove seeds and membrane. Finely mince the jalapeño. I only used half of the jalapeño since I don’t like my salsa too spicy. Use the whole pepper or more if you like your salsa hot and spicy.
Mix lime juice, olive oil and salt together in a small bowl.
Add drained tomatoes to a medium sized bowl.
Drain red onion from water in a fine meshed strainer and add to the bowl.
Add jalapeño pepper, avocado and cilantro to the bowl.
Pour lime dressing over tomato avocado salsa and toss gently.
Jalapeño peppers are HOT. Be careful not to touch your face or eyes when handling the jalapeño pepper since it will burn. Wash your hands after dicing them. I removed the seeds and membrane since I don’t like a really spicy salsa. If you want more heat then use a whole jalapeño or two.
