Salsa dip/手做莎莎醬

莎莎醬!莎莎醬!莎莎醬!

終於講到莎莎醬了,墨西哥口味的食物離亞洲飲食文化太遠了,莎莎醬還是我還在亞洲時最最最熟悉也是唯一聽過的墨西哥沾醬.來到美國之後常常在墨西哥餐館吃到,但從來沒想過可以自己做,直到有一天J媽在我眼前親手做了家庭版的莎莎醬,原來這麼簡單又健康,配上玉米薯片真的很對味.
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.

 材料 INGREDIENTS:
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)
快速切洋蔥法:
先把洋蔥切半,再順著紋理與繞著洋蔥弧度切,但只切到4/5,不要整個切斷,還是保留洋蔥絲在洋蔥頭上.要切幾刀由你要的洋蔥丁大小來決定,要大一點的洋蔥丁就切寬一點,要小一點的洋蔥丁,兩刀之間的距離就短一點.這個食譜所需要是小小的洋蔥丁,所以我們就切很多刀,兩刀之間距離近一點.
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.
再逆紋理切,就可以切出完美的小塊洋蔥
make cross-wise cuts and you can get a beautiful small diced onion.
一把切碎的香菜
1/2 cup chopped cilantro番茄去籽法:
番茄對半切以後用湯匙挖去籽
How to seeded tomatoes:
 Cut the tomato in half and use a spoon to remove seeds
把所有材料備齊
可以把3顆去籽的番茄細切如洋蔥,也可以把番茄絞碎,J先生喜歡蕃茄非常細碎的口感,所以我做後者.
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!!!
