This recipe was passed down to me by one of my aunts (she was given the recipe by a friend who has family in Mexico) and it's been a family favorite for over thirty years.
Salsa Fresca8 roma tomatoes
1 medium onion
1 bunch cilantro
2-3 jalapeno chiles, seeded*
*for more spice, leave in some of the seeds.
** since there currently is a lime shortage, i used lemons instead. they were not tart enough and i used 4 small lemons to get the right acidity.
Roughly chop the tomatoes, onion, cilantro and jalapenos and place them in a large bowl. Mix in the lime or lemon juice and add salt to taste. Put it in the refrigerator for an hour or so to let the flavors meld.
