2-3 vine ripened Roma tomatoes (1 to 1 ½ lbs), finely diced
1/2 red onion, finely diced
2 Serrano chili peppers, finely diced
Juice of 1 fresh lime
Handful of chopped cilantro
2 tablespoons fresh ginger, minced
1 tablespoon fresh garlic, minced
1/4 cup Spanish peanuts, chopped
Salt and pepper to taste
Combine all of the ingredients in a medium sized bowl. Be careful to wash your hands thoroughly after handling the chili peppers! Let the salsa sit for an hour so that the flavors can combine.
Experiment with different types of onions.
Add some finely chopped or grated carrot…it adds color and crunch and it’s good for you.
