Salsa Fresca

I decided that it would be fun to do a "Salsa" theme this week. I really hope people participate and I'm hoping that someone has a fantastic black bean salsa recipe, my favorite one is stuck on our crashed hard drive !

Salsa Fresca

  • 4 med tomatoes, diced
  • 2 green chilies, seeded and diced
  • 1/2 onion, diced
  • 3 sprigs cilantro, cut up
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp fresh ground pepper
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

Combine all ingredients and mix. It does taste better if you give it a couple hours in the fridge for the flavors to blend, but is still good right away!
