from Julie Van Rosendaal

At its most basic, salsa is a mulch of fresh tomatoes, onion, chiles and lime juice, a combination that comes together in five minutes, by hand or blender.

2-3 ripe tomatoes, finely chopped

1/2 sweet onion, finely chopped

1 jalapeño pepper, seeded and minced

1/2 c. fresh cilantro, finely chopped (optional)

juice of half a lime (or to taste)

big pinch salt

Chop and combine everything in a bowl, or pulse it in the bowl of a food processor until it’s as coarse or smooth as you like, adjusting the salt, lime and jalapeño as needed. Makes about 3 cups.
