Simple Fresh Salsa Recipe
Enough with store-bought salsa. A homemade batch is so much better, and the good news is that it takes no time to make! Not only is it healthier for you, but the ingredients are super fresh and you get to flavor the salsa exactly how you like it.
Toss in your own favorite ingredients and create something that’s uniquely yours. Then serve it in a beautiful salsa bowl and you will be beaming with pride, I promise!
Personally, I like my salsa to be tangy, salty, fruity and spicy. The combination of sweet mango, fresh cilantro and hot jalapeño always makes me smile.
It hits all the right notes and ends with a clean finish. This is a quick and simple fresh salsa recipe that’s vibrant, healthy and tasty!
The ingredients are minimal and very easy to find: jalapeño, tomatoes, mango, red onions, garlic, cilantro, lime, hot sauce and good olive oil. And if you are feeling a little adventurous, I recommend adding a splash of fish sauce – you won’t believe how good and how well it pairs with sweet and acidic flavors!
A match made in el cielo!
