-Hi, I'm Miranda with recipe.com, and today I'm gonna show you how to make the best salsa. Now, you could make this to base for [unk] with tomatoes fresh from your garden for extra fresh, yummy punch, and serve it with keeps for quick, fast appetizer. I have ingredients all laid out here. We have 3 medium tomatoes that have been chopped, 1 small onion, chopped. We have 2 tablespoons of fresh cilantro, snipped or chopped; 1 clove of garlic, which has been peeled and minced, 1 teaspoon of sugar. We have 2 tablespoons of fresh lemon juice, and then 1 jalapeno, which has been seeded and cut up. Now, just a note about jalapeno, when you're cutting or working with jalapeno at all, before to wash hands frequently and do not touch your face especially your eyes, ears, nose, or mouth. The jalapeno has like really, really hot oils on it. Particularly on the seeds, which could just be so, so painful if you come in contact with it. So, just be sure to keep your hand away from your face when you're working with jalapeno. So, easily enough, we're just going to combine everything here in this bowl. So, I'm gonna start with the tomatoes and great thing about salsa is you can vary the recipe using anything you want. You could add in something else. You could substitute fruits. For example, you could use like mango or pineapple in place of the tomato. Once you have a nice basic recipe down, you can sort of customize to your heart content, add in the garlic there, now the sugar. The other great thing about salsa, as I said this is perfect for a quick appetizer, but you can store this covered in your refrigerator for up to 2 weeks. You could use it top eggs, you know, on top of the salad instead of salad dressing, which add in lemon juice. There's so much that you can do with salsa especially fresh easy salsa like this. Now, let's add in those hot, hot jalapenos. Perfect, give just another toast. Look how beautiful this is. We just have all this like fresh, delicious ingredients and now you could certainly buy sauce at the store. How easy was that? So, why not just go ahead and make your own best salsa.
