How to make it

  • In a small serving bowl, mix onion, garlic, cilantro, and lime juice. Sprinkle liberally with salt.
  • Dice plum tomatoes, discarding seeds and juice. Add to the serving bowl.
  • Put on a pair of gloves. Finely mince the chili peppers, using 1 with the seeds discarded for a medium-spicy salsa, or 2 with seeds for a very spicy one.
  • Mix the peppers into the salsa. Adjust the seasoning to taste.
  • Refrigerate until serving.
  • Note: the salsa will become a little watery. Drain off some liquid before serving, if desired, or serve as-is. Either way is fine.

    This was very simple to make and tastes divine! We just moved to a different state and there are no Baja Fresh restaurants around us;my husband and I have been itching for their salsa, I tried this & we're cured!
