Vamos Salsa

The food, not the dance.

First combine equal portion of red onion, cilantro leaves and tomatoes or mango, all finely diced. Then add in a few chilies and a small gloves of garlic, all finely chopped. Next, sprinkle pinch of salt and squirt of lime juice. For a little additional tang and citrusy fragrance, I grated a bit of lime rind into the mix. Finally use the 3 Ts to finish up the salsa: toss, taste and tweak whatever flavor according to your fancy. Simply, the key to a super rica salsa is striking the balance between sweetness, spicy heat and sourness.

Good as dipping sauce for tortilla chips or topping for toast. Mmmm, que delicioso!
