Do you remember the Seinfeld episode where Jerry and George are at Monks Coffee Shop trying to come up with ideas for a new TV show to pitch to NBC? Somehow, the subject of salsa comes up.
It's impossible for me not to think of this clip whenever I'm making or eating salsa. And so it was, when I prepared JJ's Favorite Yam and Black Bean Burritos from the book The Gluten-Free Vegan by Susan O'Brien along with my fresh guacamole and salsa.
In an earlier post, I shared my recipe for the simple-to-prepare and delicious guacamole pictured above. Here I share a quick and easy recipe for the refreshing salsa fresca pictured alongside.
3 large tomatoes, chopped
1/2 medium onion, finely chopped
1 clove garlic, finely minced
1 Serrano or jalapeño pepper, finely chopped
3 tablespoons cilantro, chopped
Juice of 1 lime
1/8 teaspoon oregano, finely crushed
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
Combine all of the ingredients in a serving bowl. Serve immediately or refrigerate and serve within 4 or 5 hours. Makes 4 cups.
