Tips + storage information
Tips for making this fresh and healthy salsa:
- When making this recipe, freshly squeezed lime juice is always best
- If you find that your chopped onions are a bit too thick, don’t be afraid! You can rinse it with cold water, then drain it thoroughly, and then add it to the salsa to lower it a bit.
- For this interesting variation of salsa, replace the green bell peppers with red, yellow or orange. Or why not have some fun and mix half of green with half of another color.
- If you are sensitive to spiciness, you can gradually add the jalapenos little by little at a time until it reaches the heat you like. It’s worth noting that not all jalapenos are the same, some are milder than others-this is almost luck in the draw!
- You can also use serrano pepper instead of jalapeno for a milder flavor.
Useful tips for using jalapenos:
- A good way to cut a jalapeno is to cut it in half lengthwise, and then use a spoon to scrape off the film and seeds from the bottom to the top of the pepper. Then you can dice it as needed.
- Wearing gloves when handling jalapenos is also always a good idea, but if you don’t have anything handy and end up a little hot, you can try the following things:
- Use dish soap instead of hand sanitizer to wash your hands immediately.
- Try putting your hands in some cold milk, or cover your hands with yogurt.
- Use a dampened cotton ball to apply rubbing alcohol to the skin.
