Cilantro Salsa Recipe

Pico de Gallo is the queen of fresh salsa, but this easy recipe runs a close second. Some cooks will tell you that the lime juice is optional, but I think it works perfectly with the cilantro to create a unique flavor combo.

Cilantro Salsa Recipe

5 *Roma (plum) tomatoes, peeled and seeded,
3 Tbsp. Cilantro
4 Tbsp. Scallions
2 Garlic cloves
2 Jalapeno peppers, chopped
½ Tbsp. Lemon juice
1 Tbsp. Lime juice
½ tsp. Cumin
¼ tsp. Salt
¼ tsp. Black pepper

Cilantro Salsa Directions

Mince garlic and peppers; chop onions, tomato, and cilantro. Combine. Add spices and liquid ingredients. Refrigerate for up to 4 hours.

Serves four.

*If you don't know how to peel a tomato, getting the skins off can be the most difficult part of this recipe. For easy step-by-step instructions on tomato peeling (actually, it can be pretty easy), visit: How to Peel a Tomato.
