Crabanero Salsa Fresca
The Crabanero is an Old Bay seasoned hot sauce and gives this salsa that little "Summer at the Beach" flavor.
Enjoy!What you need
1 1/2 pounds very ripe plum tomatoes (seeded and diced)
1 medium red onion, finely diced
2 cloves fresh garlic, minced
1/4 c. roasted green chilies, diced - fire roast your own or use canned
1/4 c. cilantro (chiffanade)
2 T olive oil
1-2 T Crabanero brand hot sauce
1/2 lime, squeezed
Salt & pepper to taste, or omit salt and pepper and substitute with a sprinkle or two of Old Bay seasoningWhat to do
Mix all ingredients and try to let sit for 1 hour. After it has, you’ll notice that some liquid has formed.
At this point if the liquid doesn't bother you just stir it in as it is full of flavor. Or you can use it as a base for vinaigrettes or a zesty and fresh addition to your Bloody Mary recipe.
Enjoy with warmed tortilla chips.
Yield: 2-3 cups of salsa.
