  • 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and finely minced (optional)
  • juice of 1 lime
  • ¼-1/2 tsp salt (to taste)
Instructions
  1. Dice tomatoes and onions into equally sized small pieces (no bigger than your pinky).
  2. Add to a medium sized bowl.
  3. Add cilantro, jalapeno (omit if children are eating), lime juice, and about ¼ tsp salt.
  4. Mix, let sit for a few minutes, taste, and add more salt and lime juice if required.

Notes
Best made the night before in order to give flavors time to meld together.
This recipe can easily be doubled, and lasts a day or two in the fridge.
