  • ½ Small Red Onion chopped
  • 1 Jalapeno seeded and chopped

  1. Leftover salsa stays well into a clean airtight box up to 3 days in the fridge.
  2. If you don't like cilantro, swap it with some chopped fresh mint or fresh basil.
  3. Avoid using bottled lime juice to make this recipe, use fresh lime juice for the best taste.
  4. Use the jalapeno as per your preference for spice level, leave some seeds if you prefer more heat in your salsa recipe.
  5. You can also use serrano pepper, habanero or green chili as a substitute for jalapeno.
Feel free to jazz up your salsa with these fruits and vegetables as a variation or add-ins:
  • Fruits: Diced or chopped mango, avocado, pineapple, peach, nectarines, kiwi, tomatoes, blueberries, raspberries.
  • Vegetables: chopped cucumber, yellow or red bell peppers, grilled corn.
