I actually made this one up, primarily because I hate cilantro and like my salsa on the mild side!
2 ripe tomatoes (about 1 lb. total), chopped
1/2 red onion, chopped
1 clove minced garlic
1/3 cup coarsely chopped flat-leafed parsley
juice of 1 lime (about 1/4 cup)
1/2 jalapeno, cored seeded and minced
(or use your favorite hot sauce or red pepper flakes)
In a large bowl, combine the tomato, onion, parsley, lime juice and whatever you are using for heat.
Toss gently to mix well. Serve at room temperature, or chilled.
Makes about 3 cups.
*not a secret ingredient, but a good thing to know...
Salt will draw moisture from the tomatoes, making the salsa watery as it sits; so, if you add salt, do so just before serving.
Happy New Year!
