  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • Mix well, serve, and enjoy!

  • Remove the seeds and core from the tomatoes to prevent the salsa from getting watery or mushy. Use a serrated knife for slicing and dicing the tomatoes. You can use other types of tomatoes, but roma tomatoes are one of the best varieties for salsa.
  • You can use a food processor to pulse the veggies instead of chopping them by hand, but the texture of the salsa will be more like the kind you get in a jar or at a restaurant.
  • Store the salsa in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days.
