Ingredients

3-4 medium fresh tomatoes, finely diced
1/2 red onion, diced
1 serrano pepper, finely chopped
1 lime, juiced
3 tablespoons cilantro, chopped
1 large pinch salt

(Wear gloves when preparing the pepper and don’t touch your eyes!)

After dicing and chopping, combine all the ingredients in a medium-sized bowl. Season to taste. If the serrano makes your salsa too hot, add more tomatoes.  Set aside for one hour to allow the flavors to blend, and enjoy!
