2 medium vine ripened tomatoes, about 2 cups diced small
½ small white onion, about ½ cup diced small
1 small jalapeño pepper, chopped – leave seeds and membranes for heat
1 lime, about 2T fresh squeezed juice
1/3C fresh cilantro leaves, chopped
1 garlic clove, pressed
1/4t Himalayan salt – optional
Dash of fresh ground pepper
DIRECTIONS: Mix all ingredients in a non-metal bowl. Let stand 5 minutes. You can hand chop and dice ingredients. Or you can put all ingredients in a food processor before dicing and chopping and pulsate until mixed. Put the tomatoes in last, if you want them to be “chunkier”.
HEALTHY HINTS & TIPS: Use a food processor to save time. Use cucumber slices in place of tortilla chips OR use Guiltless Gourmet baked chips for a healthier alternative to fried tortilla chips. Can be used as a topping for tacos or on grilled or broiled chicken, pork, beef, or lamb in place of gravy and it’s good on fish!
