What You Will Need:

  • 1 jalapeno - seeded and chopped finely (be careful to wash your hands well after handling jalapenos)
  • 4 Tbsp lime juice - Juice of two limes
  • 1/2 cup cilantro - chopped

  • Dice all ingredients
  • Gently combine all the ingredients in a medium bowl. 
  •  Allow the salsa to rest for 2 hrs or more, if you can, before serving. Enjoy!
