How to Make It

Step 1

Shave the onion very thinly, following the curvature of the onion and preserving the integrity of the onion's cell wall structure. It matters.

Step 2

Throw in the salt. Toss. Toss again. One more time. Good.

Step 3

Now, add the lime juice. Tumble the onion a couple of times.

Step 4

Let the onion mixture sit for 10 minutes at room temperature.

Step 5

Right before serving, add the cilantro. Not a second sooner.

Step 6

Serve atop Cocoa-Crusted New York Strip, grilled meats, hearty roasts, or...pretty much anything in the universe. Thank Maria. She'll feel good inside.
