Easy salsa fresca

February 6, 2012 § 1 Comment

Chips and salsa have to be one of my favorite snacks. I can usually just eat it as a full meal. Usually I get the standard Tostitos brand salsa in medium spicy, but today I was craving something fresh and zingy. Plus, I had a large cartoon of grape tomatoes that were looking the worse for wear and needed to be used pronto.

This recipe is highly customizable and based on personal taste. I used handfuls of diced grape tomatoes, diced red onion, red pepper flakes (normally I’d use jalapeno but didn’t have any today), chopped cilantro, a couple squeezes of lime juice for acidity and brightness, a light drizzle of good olive oil, and salt. Cilantro-haters can cut the herb, chili heads can add more spice, and you could probably also add some other fresh-tasting vegetables like cucumber or watermelon. The possibilities are endless for this quick, easy, and healthy afternoon snack.
