Recipe Directions

This salsa tastes best if you chop everything by hand. You can use a food processor and pulse chop, but the tomatoes get mushy/foamy and the salsa loses a great deal of it’s flair.

Combine tomatoes, onion, 3-4 cloves garlic, and cilantro in a bowl. Mix. Pour enough apple cider vinegar so that the liquid is level with the amount of tomatoes (usually about 1/4 c.). Add the lime juice. Mix thoroughly. Taste. Add salt, additional garlic (to give it more kick), and agave nectar (if it is too sour).

I love using red cabbage leaves or dehydrated chips to dip. It is also great over portabellos stuffed with guacamole. Enjoy!

Basic tomato salsa with a different kick. This recipe will make you sweat without the hassle of hot peppers if enough onions and garlic are used. The apple cider vinegar amplifies the kick of the onions and garlic. The finer you dice the onions and the more garlic you add, the hotter the salsa becomes without jalapenos.

Grinning ear to ear I must admit that I always double the recipe because I catch my 2 year old stealing big spoonfuls when I turn my head :o). I guess it is addicting because it is a warming food with lots of vitamin C. I look forward to trying many of your recipes very soon. Thanks again.

That is so random. My mom and I made almost the exact same salsa last weekend. I was surprised it would taste good without the jalapenos but it was delicious!
