  • salt, 1 tsp
  • lime juice, 1 lime yields
  • whhite onions, raw, 1 medium
  • 2 peppers, hot chili, red, fresh or chipolte
  • red ripe tomatoes, 5 plum tomato
  • cilantro, raw, 5 tbsp chopped or one bunch
  • you can make this in 5 minutes or less with fresh ingredients, or if you like a smokier taste, toss tomatoes and onions on the grill until skins are lightly blackening and then blend.
  • red onions will give a darker color and sweeter taste then traditonal white mexican onions.
  • fresh cilantro is a must. you can not successively subsitute dried.
  • i prefer the italian or roma tomatoes for their sturdier character and less juice/seed content. if fresh, ripe roma's are not available, look for vine riped or heriloom. stay away from the scary pink looking, tasteless thing grocery stores try to tell us is a tomotoe!
