As promised, here is my recipe for salsa cruda. It’s got that fresh taste that goes so well with dishes that have clean tastes. It was fantastic with my black beans.
I think it would also be delicious with a fresh taco salad, grilled chicken or a firm fish (like swordfish), seared. That will be my next application, I think.
yields about 2 cups
3 medium tomatoes, diced
2 small mild peppers, finely chopped
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 small red onion, finely chopped
Combine all the ingredients in a sealed container and shake well. For best flavor, let sit at least 30 minutes before serving.
