RECIPE: AUTHENTIC MEXICAN SALSA

Since we’ve been home from Mexico I’ve been (missing it and) craving my beloved fresh salsa like nobody’s business. As per stories, my diet there basically consisted of homemade tortilla chips, guacamole and salsa (plus margarita) for lunch everyday.

I’ve made this salsa many times on stories before and many of you have asked for the recipe. I love it simply because its fresh, full of flavour and packed with healthy enzymes and nutrients, making it the perfect snack any night of the week.

Ready? It’s SUPER complicated. Scroll down for the list of ingredients and how-to-make:

What You’ll Need:

  • Large mixing bowl
  • Glass jar
  • Sharp Knife or better yet, food processor to cut down on time (if you don’t have one you can chop!)

Ingredients:

  • Limes: to taste, I use about 3 whole limes
  • Onion: half of a white onion
  • Cilantro: one bunch of fresh Cilantro
  • Roma Tomatos: 6 romas
  • Salt & Pepper: to taste

Finely chop up tomatoes and add to the bowl. Finely chop up cilantro and add to the bowl. 

Finely chop onion and add to the bowl, along with crushed sea salt and a drizzle of olive oil. I like lots of fresh squeezed lime juice so I add in 2-3 whole limes into bowl.

Mix, pour into jar and store in fridge for at least one hour before eating to allow flavours to properly combine. 

We eat this stuff like candy and go through it pretty fast so I make a 1Litre batch every time and store it in a glass jar in the fridge. If you can make it last that long, it should be fresh for at least one week.

For tortillas we love Que Pasa Tortillas since they’re light and Organic. For movie night we even pop them in the oven for 3 or 4 minutes to eat warm.

Enjoy!
