Jalapeño-Lime Salsa

Yield: Yields 1-3/4 cup.

Because the piquancy of fresh jalapeños can vary, I like to add some jarred pickled jalapeños for a little more oomph and a tanginess that goes well with the pork.

Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 cups seeded and finely diced ripe tomato (about 2 medium)
  • 1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 3 Tbs. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 Tbs. finely diced red onion
  • 1 fresh jalapeno, cored, seeded, and minced
  • 1 Tbs. finely chopped pickled jalapeno slices; more to taste
  • 1-1/2 Tbs. freshly squeezed lime juice; more to taste
  • 1 tsp. finely grated lightly packed lime zest
  • Kosher salt

    Almost like pico de gallo but the lime and lime zest are great additions. My local Hispanic friends are crazy for it.
