S ~ Salsa Mexicana

Event: Blogging Marathon#32
Theme: Condiments

Salsa means literally "sauce" in Spanish though it has become synonymous with tomato based spicy dips from Mexico. There are various varieties of salsas popular in Latin American cuisine and people tend to make their salsas differently each time. They can be fresh or cooked, chunky or pulsed to a coarse or smooth texture. 
Salsa Mexican or the Mexican sauce is a fresh salsa made with raw tomatoes, lime juice, chili peppers, onions and cilantro leaves. It is also termed as pico de gallo or salsa fresca (fresh salsa). It doesn't store longer because of the fresh ingredients used. It can be prepared a couple of hours ahead and left at room temperature or refrigerated until serving.
Ingredients: (makes about 1.5 cups)
2 medium sized tomatoes
1 medium sized white onion
1 - 2 jalapeno or Serrano peppers
1/4 cup minced cilantro
2 - 3 Tbsp fresh lime juice
Salt
Method:
* Cut onions and tomatoes into 1/4 inch cubes. Finely chop chillies.
* Combine everything except salt in a medium bowl.
* Season to taste with salt.
