La Lore’s Salsa Fresca

This salsa is so good that I literally know a few people who prefer to drink it straight from a mug! When I was a kid, I remember that my mom used to make ridiculously large batches every weekend and package it up for neighbors, friends and family who submitted orders to her — FO FREE! (00:50 – 01:13). I really thought she would one day be famous for it.

There are a million different kinds of salsa out there and sooo many good ones (my favorites are roasted chile salsa and tomatillo salsa) but there is just something unique about my mom’s; I’ve never tasted one like it. I think it is just the particular ratio of tomatoes to onions to lime juice to avocado that gives it such incredible flavor. Also, have you ever seen a salsa with avocado??? (omg besides avocado salsa, people). We all know that avocado is the most perfect, creamy companion to any food but it really shines in this salsa, where it balances out just enough of the bite of the jalapeño.

This salsa is a great as an appetizer with tortilla chips, as a complement to any Mexican dish or, my personal favorite, atop any egg-based breakfast dish. My mom will dump the entire bowl onto whatever she happens to be eating at the moment but she is a special kind of person… Anyway, I hope you try! This really is a one-of-a-kind recipe and I’m sure you’ll love it :) ¡Buen provecho!

5 tomatoes
5 jalapeños*
1 stalk of green onions
1 bunch of cilantro
4 cloves of garlic
3 avocados
3 *small* limes
salt to taste

*this yields a medium-spicy salsa. If you would like it to be mild, remove seeds and reduce jalapeño count to four. If you like it hotter, you know what to do ;)

use a food processor to blend the onions, jalapeños, cilantro leaves (removed from stems), garlic, salt and tomatoes
