Tomatoes are finally ripe, so here is a recipe for salsa fresca. Although it is delicious as-is, if it sits, covered in the refrigerator, for an hour or so before serving, the flavors have a chance to blend even better.
Any type of salsa is delicious, but there is something incredible about salsa made from fresh ingredients, and not cooked or processed in any way.
- 3 cups chopped tomatoes
- 1/2 cup chopped green bell pepper
- 1 cup onion, diced
- 2 tablespoons lime juice
- 4 teaspoons chopped fresh jalapeno pepper (including seeds) – optional
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder (or garlic granules)
- Chop all of the vegetables into small pieces, and place in a large bowl. Add lime juice and seasonings, and stir. It’s ready to eat!

That sounds like a great change of “Pace”.
No cilantro in the salsa? Other than that I totally agree
I am one of those people who does not like cilantro (at all!), but if you do like it, you can add around 1/4 cup, chopped. I sometimes add an equivalent amount of fresh parsley.
It’s just about exactly like my salsa fresca recipe, except instead of cumin, it has plenty of cilantro. Perhaps MB is has the “tastes like soap” gene.
There is a segment of the population that has and allergic reaction to cilantro, not that it is dangerous but they hate the taste. Is that the “taste like soap” gene you reference?
