When I crave salsa, I want a fresh tomato salsa. Sweet, juicy tomatoes, red onion for a little bite, cilantro, lime juice, and a little diced jalapeño pepper, plus a dash of salt -- so simple and delicious!
I don't really have a fresh salsa recipe, per se. It's more about chopping and dicing and mixing, then a little tasting and adjusting until it's just right. But I did write down how much of each ingredient I used the last time I made fresh salsa to give you a starting point of reference.
The number one rule for making fresh salsa? Wear rubber gloves when dicing those jalapeño peppers! I made the mistake of not wearing them -- and then I touched my lips. Yowza! And not only that, but then I rubbed my nose. Oh man, lesson learned!
By the way, I'm still loving my Chicago Cutlery DesignPro Knives. They make big chopping tasks like this so much easier! See for yourself in this short video I made on how to chop an onion easily.
Yes, that's my youngest yelling in the background around the one-minute mark. I should have known that keeping quiet for two minutes would be just too much to ask!
Anyhow, as you can see, the specially made DesignPro handles make holding the knife and chopping a ton easier.
Serve with store bought tortilla chips or try making your own homemade tortilla chips!
I wrote this review while participating in a Brand Ambassador Campaign by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of Chicago Cutlery and received products to facilitate my post and a promotional item to thank me for taking the time to participate.
