3 1/2 cups (serving size: 1/4 cup)

This is the most-requested salsa at the cafeteria's Mexican station. It uses all fresh ingredients, teaching students proper vegetable washing and knife skills. Remove the seeds from the jalapeño for milder flavor.

How to Make It

Combine all ingredients in a serving bowl; toss well. Let stand 30 minutes before serving.

Why purchase chunky salsa when it's this easy? I used a whole jalapeno, fresh garlic, and chopped it all in the small bowl of the food processor. A great accompaniment to tonight's chicken tacos and probably for lots of other things as well.

Simple and tasty, this is my go-to recipe for fresh salsa. It's been a real hit at my annual margarita party, but is easy enough to make as a quick snack on a summer afternoon. I often substitute tomatoes on the vine for plum tomatoes when they look better. Like most fresh pico de gallo, it's not super spicy but concentrates more on a balance of fresh flavors.
