Also called salsa mexicana and salsa cruda, this spicy tomato sauce is ubiquitous in Mexican restaurants. Serve it with tortilla chips, quesadillas, omelettes, or anything else that needs a bit of zing.
|Directions||Mix everything in the bowl, taste, and add more hot peppers, cilantro, and/or salt, as needed.
Store in a lightly covered container in the refrigerator.
|Notes||The amounts for some of the ingredients are vague because everyone has a different tolerance for heat and cilantro. Personally, I prefer very mild salsa with little or no cilantro. Experiment to see how you like your salsa.|
