Fresh Salsa

Instead of just plain chopped tomato, you can serve the Spiced Lentil Tacos with Fresh Salsa.


The jalapeno adds a kick to the Fresh Salsa. You can also serve fresh salsa with tortilla chips or as a condiment for grilled steak or shrimp.


  • 2 medium tomatoes, roughly chopped (1 1/2 cups)
  • 1 small white onion, diced small (2/3 cup)
  • 1 jalapeno, minced
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • coarse salt and ground black pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup loosely packed fresh cilantro leaves, roughly chopped
