Salsa dip/手做莎莎醬


Salsa was the one and only dip I knew when I was in Asia. After I came to the US, I ate a lot of salsa at restaurants but I never think about do it by myself until my mother-in-law did her homemade salsa dip. It’s so easy and healthy, I wanna share with you.

2~3顆中型番茄 | 2~3 medium tomatoes
1/2顆紫色洋蔥 | 1/2 red onion
一顆萊姆的汁 | juice of 1 lime
1/2杯切碎的香菜 | 1/2 cup chopped cilantro
適量的鹽 | salt
適量的胡椒 | pepper
2瓣大蒜(可略) | 2 garlic cloves (optional)
一點點點點的孜然粉(可略) | pinch of ground cumin (optional)
一個小的角椒去籽(辣椒鑲肉的那種辣椒)(可略) | 1 jalapeno chile (optional)
How to cut onions.
Place the onion half large-cut-side down on a cutting board; Make lengthwise cuts into the onion, from root end to stem end, with the knife tip almost all the way to the root end(but not cutting through the root end).Cut at an angle as you go around the onion, with the blade aimed toward the center of the onion.The number of cuts depends on how big a chop or slice size you want, fewer cuts for thick slices or roughly chopped, more cuts for thin slices or finely chopped. we want thinly sliced onion for this recipe.
make cross-wise cuts and you can get a beautiful small diced onion.
1/2 cup chopped cilantro番茄去籽法:
How to seeded tomatoes:
 Cut the tomato in half and use a spoon to remove seeds
3 tomato seeded and diced or pureed, I did puree because of my family like it more. 1/2顆的洋蔥,一顆萊姆的汁,2瓣切成泥的大蒜,3顆去籽的番茄細切如洋蔥,1/2杯切碎的香菜 ,一點點點點的孜然粉,1/2小湯匙鹽巴與1/2小湯匙黑胡椒均勻的混在一起就完成了.
1/2 red onion, 1 lime juice, 2 clove garlic minced, 3 tomatoes seeded and pureed,1/2 cup chopped cilantro, a pinch of ground cumin, 1/2 salt and 1/2 freshly grated black pepper mix all together.That is the Salsa dip!!!
