Basic Salsa - Vegan

This is probably the most basic salsa recipe ever, which gives you a room to be creative and add a few more ingredients based on your mood. I use this basic salsa as a topping for many of my dishes.

What goes into your body (vegan):
  • Tomato
  • Red onion
  • Jalapeno pepper
  • Cilantro
  • Lime
  • Salt
You are going to:
  1. Finely chop red onion, place it in a strainer and massage about a table-spoon of salt. (This will take an edge off of the onion. If you like strong onion flavor, skip this step.

  2. Dice tomato and finely chop jalapeno pepper and cilantro.

  3. Rinse red onion and drain it well.
  4. In a large bowl, put all chopped vegetables and squeeze lime juice. Mix well and season with salt. 

Secrets from the chef:
  • No animals are harmed in the making of this dish...
  • No measuring required. Whatever you feel is the right amount is the right amount.
  • De-seed jalapeno before chopping for milder taste.
  • Optional ingredients to add: garlic, mango, corn, green onions, etc.
Bon appétit!
