This is my fresh tomato salsa recipe which I use with nacho chips, tacos, fajitas, and re- fried beans. You can take the basic recipe and tweak it to your family's tastes such as lemon instead of lime, a different hot sauce, fresh peppers, parsley instead of cilantro....
4 large very ripe (or 8 Roma tomatoes) Or if not making in Summer use 10 Canned whole San Marzano tomatoes
1/4 cup fresh chopped cilantro or parsley
1/4 cup grated red onion
1 large garlic clove grated
2 tablespoons Crystals Hot Sauce
1 lime (the zest & the juice)
1 big pinch of kosher salt
1 small pinch of sugar
Cut the tomatoes into bite size pieces and place in the bowl (Non Metal)
Grate the onion and garlic and add this to the bowl. Now chop the cilantro and add this along with the hot sauce, salt, zest, and juice. Taste to see if it needs more salt or hot sauce.
Cover with plastic wrap and allow it to sit out for atleast an hour before serving but the longer the better!
