If you can chop a few vegetables and mix them in a bowl, you will be able to pass this introduction to cooking with flying colors. You may be so impressed with the results that you begin experimenting a little more in the kitchen – but first things first, so let us get to the recipe itself.

For this salsa you are going to need Roma tomatoes, onion, jalapeño, cilantro and lime, as well as some salt and black pepper. Ensure you have good quality ingredients because the finished salsa is only going to be as good as the ingredients you use to make it. Once combined the ingredients turn into the most delicious salsa, and once of the great things about this recipe is once you have made it you will remember how to make it the next time.

You might want to tweak the recipe the second time you make it, perhaps seeing what some corn or mango will do the mixture, or even another kind of herb. There is no ‘wrong’ way to make salsa because all kinds of ingredients work in this mix. The only hard and fast rule is to do what the Mexicans do when cooking, and always choose fresh produce over canned or frozen items.
