Equipment

  • Chef knife
  • Mixing bowl

Ingredients
 

  • 4 Roma tomatoes, seeded and finely chopped ($0.72)
  • ½ medium white onion, finely chopped ($0.12)
  • 1 clove garlic, minced ($0.04)
  • 2 tbsp packed cilantro, finely minced ($0.07)
  • 1 large jalapeño, seeded and minced ($0.25)
  • 2 tbsp lime juice ($0.18)
  • Sea salt to taste ($0.01)

To Serve optional

Instructions
 

  • To begin, slice the tomatoes and remove the inner seeds and jelly. If you prefer a runnier salsa, you can omit this part. Then, chop what's left of the tomatoes and add them to a mixing bowl.
  • Next, finely dice the onion. Add that, along with the minced garlic, to the same bowl.
  • For the jalapeño, cut it in half lengthwise. With a small spoon, scrape out the seeds and finely mince the pepper. Add that to the bowl as well.
  • Mix in the minced cilantro, lime juice, and sea salt to taste.
  • Serve this salsa fresca with some homemade tortilla chips for a tasty snack or appetizer!
