Once upon a time, when I lived as a single gal in Hollywood, I used to frequent the most awesome Peruvian restaurant. They make an ‘onion salsa’ that would send my taste buds to the MOON. Last night I was craving that salsa… and without a clue on how to make it… attempted my own recipe:
1/2 red onion (thinly sliced)
4 Roma tomatoes (thinly sliced)
1 small bunch of cilantro (cut)
3 cloves fresh garlic (pounded to a paste)
I mixed the tomatoes, onion and garlic, then squeezed the limes over the mix. I seasoned with salt and cayenne to taste, then added the cilantro last. Within seconds… the lime juice ‘cooked’ all of the ingredients together and the salsa was ready!
It was sooooooooooooooo good, and just like I remembered! I was so proud. 😀
I prefer this mixture with rice, or alone for a tart little snack.
