This is the first time I have made this salsa and it tastes great. It is so fresh and healthy. Every other salsa I have tried has been store bought but because of how easy this was I don't think I will ever buy salsa again. This is  a super simple recipe and I hope everyone enjoys!

Step 1: Ingridients

1/2 of a red onion
6 roma tomatoes
1/2 a clove of garlic
2 yellow peppers
2 jalepenos
2 limes or 1 lemon
Kosher salt

Large bowl
Garlic Press

Step 2:

Clean all of the veggies and begin to chop the tomatoes, onion, jalapenos, peppers and cilantro. The little pieces of vegetables need to be really small. Keep chopping until all the veggies are cut into squares that are the same size. Put everything except the lemon/ lime juice, garlic and salt in a bowl. Use a spoon to mix everything together.

Step 3: Finishing

Juice the limes and mix the juice into the vegetables. Next, smash half a clove of a garlic and mix it into the salsa. To finish the salsa I added about 1/4 of a tsp of salt but you can add as much or as little salt as you want. Place the salsa in the refrigerator until it is time for it to be served.

    It looks delecious!
    Just out of curiousity, how spicy is it? (And to make it less spicy, could I put only 1, or half of one Jalepenio pepper?)

    Thanks! It was delicious. I can't stand a lot of heat and this was about my limit. To make it less spicy I would leave out or reduce the amount of yellow pepper. Hope this helps!
