Salsa Cruda

Beauties aren't they?? I scored these super fresh veggies at the market and knew they were just the thing to make a Salsa Cruda. The colors alone made me smile!! Who knew fruits and vegetables could have such an impact?

I also bought a bright beautiful bunch of cilantro and already had fresh garlic on hand, so here's a quick Salsa Cruda that is perfect and ready in minutes.

2 large ripe tomatoes, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 small purple onion, finely chopped
1 medium JalapeƱo pepper, seeded and finely chopped
2 Tablespoon fresh cilantro, chopped
½ tsp salt
Juice from 1 lime

Combine all ingredients in a bowl. Stir well and allow flavors to marry in a 30 minute ceremony in the fridge. Delish with chips or perfectly tops tacos, enchiladas and tostadas. Enjoy!

*TIP: To get the most juice from your lime (or any citrus) zap it in the microwave for about 30 seconds.
