Fresh Cilantro

I Love fresh cilantro! And it's so cheap here in the markets so I made a huge batch of fresh salsa. Keep in mind that it does need to be eaten within the next few days. The beauty of making it yourself is that any ingredient can be omitted or altered. Have fun adjusting it to your style and taste.
Here's all it takes to serve about 4 people-

4 large tomatoes, finely chopped (keep the juice)
1/2 onion, finely chopped
1/2 green pepper, finely chopped
1/2 cup fresh cilantro
1 garlic clove, minced
lemon juice or vinegar to taste ( approx. 4 TBSP)
salt to taste
Mix well and refrigerate until cold.

Serve with corn chips or add to the inside of your quesadilla. The other morning, I mixed it in with my scrambled egg for breakfast! It was AMAZING! Try spicing up your white rice by adding some to the rice before cooking it. Your options are limitless :)
