We make our salsa using ripe tomatoes and red onion. It is seasoned the traditional way, with cilantro and lime juice, plus some fish sauce for added flavor.

Auntie Arnie’s Tips:

When you store this salsa in the refrigerator for a few days, simply drain the excess liquid released by the tomatoes before serving.

If you would like a slightly spicy salsa, add some chopped jalapeño peppers to the mix.
