This salsa started as a roasted version which believe me was wonderful. However one day I was CRAVING it and simply did not have the time to roast everything. I decided to make a raw version instead. I have not made it any other way since. It’s that ” here, taste this”‘ “eyebrow raising” salsa that everyone loves 🙂
I’ve promised quite a few people the recipe so here it is. Enjoy!
Define Fit Raw Salsa
5-6 fresh roman tomatoes
1 very small red onion ( about 1/2 cup chopped)
1 fresh large jalapeño
1/2 tsp puréed garlic paste
1-2 TBSP puréed cilantro or 1/2-1 cup fresh ( your choice)
3 TBSP grapeseed oil
(I use Avocado-lemon oil from Safeway)
1/4-1/3 cup lime juice (fresh preferably)
1/2 tsp sugar ( I use stevia)
1/2 tsp rock salt
1. Slice end off tomatoes, cut in half & remove seeds and pith.
2. Cut into very small pieces ( think salsa lol)
3.repeat process with jalapeño. ( if you like a lot of heat, leave in some seeds)
3. Finely chop red onion.
4. Mix rest of ingredients together. Pour over tomato mixture and toss gently.
I place into a plastic container with a lid so I can toss a few times while its in the fridge.
