Fresh and bright, this salsa requires no cooking at all. If you like things extra-spicy, simply add a diced fresh jalapeño or serrano chile pepper or a few spoonfuls of drained pickled jalapeño slices to the mix before blending. In addition to enjoying as a dip for tortilla chips and veggies, consider this your secret sauce for slow-cooked anything. Pour it over chicken or pork in your slow cooker and enjoy the enticing aroma in your kitchen as meat is transformed to shreddable bliss for filling tacos, pitas, or piling in a lettuce leaf for a fresh, savory wrap.
