We both have always loved salsa though Justin tends to be a little obsessed with it….really, no joke! Justin seems to have become a salsa connoisseur and today he shares one of his favorite recipes for habanero-lime salsa. Instead of buying some of that store bought jar stuff, take a little bit of time before sitting down for the football game this Sunday and make some fresh salsa.
6-8 firm plum tomatoes
1 medium sweet onion
2 habanero peppers
1 tsp salt
1 tsp cracked black pepper
1/3 c fresh cilantro, finely chopped
1/8 c fresh parsley, finely chopped
1/4 c rice wine vinegar
Warning: Be careful when handling habanero peppers. You should wear gloves and be careful of where and what you touch immediately after handling habaneros.
Remove the seeds from the plum tomatoes and then finally dice into small quarter pieces. If you want the salsa to be very spicy then leave the seeds in the habanero peppers. If you want it to be more mild, then remove the seeds and you can also add a dash of sugar to the recipe. Finally chop onion, cilantro and parsley. Combine all ingredients and squeeze the juice of the limes into the dish. Stir all ingredients together and let rest together for approximately 20-30 minutes to allow all of the flavors to meld together.
