“Salsa fresca is a generic term for any salsa that isn't cooked. There's no right or wrong way to do it - everyone does their own thing. This recipe is my take on what my mom used to make, but I think it's exceptional. (Pat on back, LOL!) Measurements are loose, but the key is the olive oil and mexican oregano. Prep time includes 15 minutes of standing time.”

Directions

  1. In a non-reactive bowl, combine first six ingredients.
  2. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Add the minced serrano chiles, a little at a time, tasting for "heat" until you reach the level you can stand.
  4. Let stand for fifteen minutes to let the flavors meld. A small squeeze of lime juice is also good.
  5. Refrigerate until ready to use. Will NOT keep overnight.
  6. NOTE: this is such a versatile salsa. Try it in scrambled eggs, then rolled in a flour tortilla (breakfast burrito). Yum!
